Abstract: The paper focuses on the alignment of technical and human infrastructures in the semantic web, taking the development and alignment of ontologies in eHealth as a vehicle for exploring the barriers to achieving this It draws particularly on the outcomes of a recent eScience workshop looking at data integration and ontology alignment across Grid projects in the same domain. It is premised on a view of Grids as socio-technical systems aligning technical and human networks in ways which can create useful synergies, but can also work at cross purposes to generate unpredicted costs and risk.
