The E-infrastructure Leadership Council (ELC) advised government on all aspects of e-infrastructure including networks, data stores, computers, software and skills.
The ELC was disbanded in November 2017.
Role of the group
The ELC was responsible for developing a strategy to provide a world class e-infrastructure and High Performance Computing (HPC) capability for the UK. It worked in partnership with stakeholders across the academic community, industry, government and society.
The council was established in March 2012 following recommendations from the report ‘A strategic vision for UK e-infrastructure’.
The council was involved in a number of government policies, including:
- ‘Seizing the data opportunity: a strategy for UK data capability’ published September 2013
- ‘Our plan for growth: science and innovation’ published December 2014
