Research Councils seek panel member nominations for 2009 international review of e-science
7 January 2009
The Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), on behalf of all the Research Councils and in conjunction with the learned societies, is undertaking a review of the UK e-science programme. The review will be held in December 2009 and aims to provide an independent assessment of the quality and impact of the programme.
A panel of internationally leading researchers (from academia, industry, etc) from outside the UK, will benchmark the strengths of UK research activities compared to those found across the world, highlighting any gaps or missed opportunities. The panel will meet many UK research groups and have access to a wide pool of experts and supporting data to help reach their conclusions.
The Research Councils are now seeking nominations for panel members from across all relevant disciplines. In order to obtain an independent view, we seek individuals working outside the UK, including UK nationals, who hold senior positions, currently active in their field of research and be highly effective in team-working situations.
Further information (including the nomination form) and contact details can be found on the EPSRC website.
Nominations close on 27 February 2009.
