What is eScience?
Data generation and analysis using computational methods are at the heart of all modern science and technology. The explosion of new data comes from two directions: cutting-edge experiments and from in-silico simulation. This discipline of using digital methods for generating ideas and knowledge from data, often referred to as escience, is a key enabling technology for the advanced nations in the 21st century.
E-enabled science is the driving force of the revolutions, innovation and the corresponding advances in technology that lie at the heart of much of modern science.
Modern countries continue to invest huge sums on creating the necessary e-infrastructure to support these developments because of positive return on investment in terms of growth in the industrial and commercial sectors, and the effect of escience on healthcare, transportation, renewable and clean energy, climate modelling and basic science.
