e-Research South is an EPSRC funded consortium of seven partner organisations across the south of England:
The Oxford e-Research Centre works with research units across the whole of Oxford University to enable the use and development of innovative computational and information technology in multidisciplinary collaborations.
Since its inception 2006 the Centre has grown to be an internationally prestigious team of over 50 multidisciplinary researchers committed to accelerating research through innovative technology and is home to a portfolio of research projects in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, technology and research infrastructure development.
The Reading e-Science Centre (ReSC) develops and promotes innovative research computing methods through collaborations with academia, government agencies and industry, with a particular focus on the environmental sciences. It is hosted at the Environmental Systems Science Centre at the University of Reading.
Science and Technology
Facilities Council on behalf of the UK research community operates powerful next
generation scientific facilities such as synchrotrons, satellites, telescopes and lasers, collectively generate many terabytes of data every day. Their users require efficient access to geographically distributed leading edge data storage, computational and network resources in order to manage and analyse these data in a timely and cost effective way. e-Science builds the infrastructure which delivers this.
Its mission is to spearhead the exploitation of e-Science technologies throughout Science and Technology Facilities Council's programmes, the research communities they support and the national science and engineering base.
The University of Southampton combines academic excellence with an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to research, supporting a culture that engages and challenges students and staff in their pursuit of learning.
The Centre for e-Research (CeRch) at King’s College London was established in 2008. The Centre aims to facilitate interdisciplinary, institutional, national and international collaboration.
The Centre researches, publishes and teaches in its areas of expertise, contributing, with the Department of Digital Humanities, to the RAE2008 (placed 2nd overall in the Library and Information Studies panel) and to forthcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF). The Centre also runs the MA programme in Digital Asset Management with the Department of Digital Humanities.
The Brunel Institute of Power Systems (BIPS) group has a record of international excellence in research and development of advanced computational tools (software and hardware) for the analysis, control, operation, management and design of the electricity generation, transmission and distribution systems.
UKOLN is a research organisation that aims to inform practice and influence policy in the areas of: digital libraries, information systems, bibliographic management, and web technologies. It provides network information services, including the Ariadne magazine, and runs workshops and conferences.
Bournemouth University is an innovative, international university offering high quality student experience, research and professional practice. Its Vision builds on BU’s current success to create a distinctive offer based on academic excellence underpinned by service excellence.
In eRS, BU is represented by: a) the Smart Technology Research Centre (STRC), an interdisciplinary and integrative centre focusing on the investigation and development of smart systems and technologies providing seamless integration of information from various sources for, among others, innovative technology driven services, extraction and intelligent analysis of information from large commercial and scientific databases, reduction of operational costs of industrial processes or modelling and analysis of complex adaptive systems; and b) the Conservation Ecology and Environmental Sciences Group (CEESG), a multi-disciplinary research team of geographers and ecologists undertaking research on environmental change with specialists interests including remote sensing, the ecology of birds, fish, invertebrates, mammals and plants, in terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments.
