Title: Online Sciences – A Collaboration Seminar Speaker: Joanna Berry, Newcastle University Date: 12th of February 09 Time: 12:00 - 14:00 Venue: Atlas 1 and 2, Kilburn Building, School of Computer Science

Abstract: The E-Science Central project – see www.esciencecentral.co.uk - has received initial funding from One North East in order to develop collaborative systems online to support science.

You are invited to a seminar which will showcase developments to date, and demonstrate how the E-Science Central programme enables scientists to work online, providing them with unrivalled access to sophisticated and fully compatible open source software. The programme supports the important academic tradition of research through partnership whilst also providing totally secure and confidential working environments for individuals or groups of scientists. It is intended to enrich this work through the principles of interpersonal networks to underpin this and thus create a rich and interactive environment of scientific collaboration, community and creativity. To ensure the project continues beyond grant funding the new company InkSpot Science Ltd will work as a mechanism to sustain the development of the emerging scientific developments and the growing community of researchers. InkSpot is the first Science City company to be established by Professors of Practice working from within Newcastle University Business School. InkSpot is informed by the work currently in progress through the One North East-supported E-Science Central research programme.

This exciting new venture is being delivered by Professor of Practice David Leahy together with Professor Paul Watson and Dr Hugo Hiden both of Newcastle University School of Computing Science and Joanna Berry of Newcastle University Business School.
