Have your say on the UK’s e-infrastructure

A working group has been set up for a new leadership council advising the UK government on e-infrastructure and investment into data science, training, software, and computing resource.

They are looking for the input of the start-up community and SMEs on how best to spend a £145 million budget secured by David Willetts, the Minister of State for Universities and Science, from the UK's hard infrastructure budget (think roads, tolls, etc) for digital.

As it's public money for a public good, the working group wants to make sure it's allocated appropriately to serve a group broader than initially outlined when this project started.

To kickstart this discussion, the group has put together a short survey and need your input to this. The survey will close on June 13. All of the results will be made publicly available under a Creative Commons license.

Please join in by completing the survey and tweet to help to spread the word. Your input will directly influence not only how this investment is divvied up, but also shape how this country views data-driven research, business and training for years to come.
