Winchester, MA Why attend the fall 2012 E-Science Institute?
D. Scott Brandt, Associate Dean for Research, Purdue University Libraries and 2011 E-Science Institute participant suggests, “The E-Science Institute helps you get a handle on e-Science so you can articulate where and how to support research in new ways. The ESI faculty’s experience, knowledge and guidance make this an excellent program. Participants have to do their share of the work, but the outcomes and networking are very much worth it.”
Registration for the co-hosted DuraSpace/ARL/DLF E-Science Institute is open and limited to 25 institutions. Visit http://duraspace.org/e-science-institute to register.
The E-Science Institute is designed to help academic and research libraries develop a strategic agenda for e-research support, with a particular focus on the sciences. The Institute consists of a series of interactive modules that take small teams of individuals from your institution through a dynamic learning process to strengthen and advance their strategy for supporting computational scientific research. The coursework begins with a series of exercises for teams to complete at their institutions, and culminates with an in-person workshop. Local institution assignments help staff establish a high level understanding of research support background needs and issues.
