1. What is e-Science? " e-Science is about global collaboration in key areas of science and the next generation of infrastructure that will enable it ." - Sir John Taylor, Former Director General of Research Councils, 2000 “ the development and deployment of a networked infrastructure and culture through which resources – (…) – can be shared in a secure environment, and in which new forms of collaboration can emerge, and new and advanced methodologies explored.” - Sheila Anderson Director, Centre for e-Research, King’s College London, 2007
