This project has two key objectives, which are: (i) to create learning and teaching materials about the use of Grid Technologies to solve social science research problems, taking as its demonstrator a project illustrating how this can be achieved through the Grid enabled integration and analysis of the National Statistics database; (ii) to demonstrate the potential of an Access Grid for collaborative teaching, learning and research, by using AGN technology as a demonstration tool under the ESRC Research Methods Programme.
