A UKRI-sponsored workshop on the UK’s e-infrastructure roadmap for research and innovation will take place on Tuesday, 26th February 2019 at CFMS. The event is free to attend and open to UK industrial and business communities.
The workshop will look at future UK requirements in the following areas: supercomputing, data infrastructure, software tools for modelling, simulation and data analytics, and digital skills requirements.
UKRI are keen to ensure that delegates have the opportunity to contribute to the road mapping exercise, which is on a scale never undertaken before in the UK. Delegates will also have a chance to hear progress, and give input into and influence final roadmap content.

Further information on the roadmap can be found here:
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) was commissioned by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s Ministers to develop the first national research and innovation infrastructure roadmap. This is a challenging task as the UK has never undertaken a road mapping exercise of this breadth and scale. It will offer enormous benefit in increasing our understanding of the UK's current capability and in planning for the future. This work is a component of wider government efforts to raise investment in research and development to 2.4% of GDP. For more information visit: https://www.ukri.org/
