A coherent strategy for developing and delivering the UK's future e‐infrastructure needs is essential in driving forward the continued development of a globally competitive research base within the UK.
The EPSRC along with its sister Research Councils under UKRI, the Funding Councils, the Technology Strategy Board and BEIS (the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) plays a key role in developing the strategy as well as delivering the funding to support e‐infrastructure in the UK. The development of a sustainable and cutting edge e‐infrastructure ecosystem is vital in allowing EPSRC to deliver its Strategic Goals and support excellent and innovative science and engineering research.
The EPSRC has formulated EPSRC e-Infrastructure Strategy 2018 and EPSRC Software Infrastructure Strategy 2018 with the help of key stakeholders. Both documents will be updated on a regular basis.
