The goal of the event is to accelerate the raising of awareness and the uptake of e-science technologies. It will do this by creating a roadmap of joint actions to be undertaken by BOF participants who are engaged in training and initiatives in university education.
As production grids mature so e-science technologies are poised for contributing
to an ever-widening spectrum of research. Researchers need to be equipped
to respond to these opportunities. This is accomplished by training for
current practitioners and education for the next generation of researchers,
for whom e-science technologies will form the basis of much of their work.
The BOF builds on previous NeSC initiatives. A BoF held at AHM 2005 (http://wiki.nesc.ac.uk/read/ahm_bof_training) helped to establish collaborations in training, including between AHESSC, NCESS, NeSC, NIEES, UCL, White Rose Grid (WRG) and the Welsh e-Science Centre. The training and education theme was also developed in a GGF16 workshop.
