Training and Awareness Raising: Resource Discovery for Researchers in E-Social Science


The key objectives of the project are to: (i) create a web based resource discovery portal aimed at introducing and explaining how Grid technologies can enhance qualitative and quantitative social science research. This will include short introductory guides, training materials and exemplars (drawn from the demonstrator projects); (ii) run a road show series across the social science community explaining how e-science can enhance the capacity to analyse complex social and economic problems; (iii) organise a programme of research workshops debating hoe e-science can contribute to the development of theory, methods and collaborative working within the social sciences.
