The digital era brings new challenges and opportunities for scientific research, offering new ways of global interaction within disciplines, as well as local collaborations between disciplines.
Exponential increases in bandwidth, computational resources and storage have improved channels for sharing findings among researchers, and between researchers and society, thanks to new forms of dissemination and access to information.
The eResearch Report 2016–2017 highlights the many challenges presented to eResearch in the past year, and are presented in the publication in acknowledgement of the innovative work of the researchers who are exploring these opportunities to extend their research practice.
This year we are proud to showcase our work – not only at UCT, but regionally – in building new eResearch partnerships to support data-intensive research.
Our priority, as it was last year, is to provide researchers with access to the cutting-edge facilities, infrastructure and support they need to stay globally competitive.
