E-research National Perpectives

CollectionsAustralian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR)
Title: E-research National Perpectives
Author(s): Burton, Adrian
"eResearch", where the worlds of academia, computational power and high-speed telecommunications intersect. This is the world of networked information, networked researchers, and networked computing environments, where single researchers and single institutions can longer compete alone. What then are the national and international perspectives for policy and infrastructure to enable and support eResearch? What are the trends and working models elsewhere? What is happening from a national perspective in eResearch? These are the questions to be addressed by Adrian Burton, the Leader of the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR). Adrian will look at national and international government policies, initiatives, trends and issues, and discuss them in the context of the current and future work of APSR and the higher education sector more broadly. He will also outline some of the work of the APSR eResearch Technical Consultancy service established during 2005. This is one of three papers on eResearch which are proposed as a group for a single session of EduCause. The three are (i) Adrian Burton and David Berriman: National perspectives on eResearch – policy, infrastructure, trends, and demonstrators, (ii) Margaret Henty and Danny Kingsley: Readiness and responsibility for managing research data: institutional perspectives and (iii) Anna Shadbolt: Tracing a sustainable path for data intensive research communities: An institutional case study from the University of Melbourne.
