It investigates how the government might create an e-infrastructure to support a strong public-private partnership. It also outlines a 10 year strategy for developing and managing the UK’s e-infrastructure. This infrastructure, including networks, data repositories, computers, software and skills is an essential tool for research and development in industry and for fundamental science. The report also recommends setting up an e-infrastructure leadership council.
