[*] Dr. Walton writes:

"UCamGrid is an initiative aimed at providing an inner focus for University of Cambridge 'grid' and 'escience' endeavours. Continuing excellence in research will be ensured by successfully leveraging and exploiting 'grid' technologies. UCamGrid aims to provide a forum, bringing together the wide variety of expertise across the University in this area. Best practice and 'grid' possibilities will be disseminated throughout the University. Awareness will be raised as to how 'grid' technologies can best be utilised by any particular research group.

UCamGrid will help foster and promote multi-disciplinary e-science bids with active UCam involvement, helping to best position UCam groups with respect to upcoming Spending Review 2002 and EU Framework 6 funding opportunities. UCamGrid is being formed around a nucleus of University 'grid' expertise including the CeSC, GridPP, AstroGrid and the NIEeS. Interested groups are invited to participate."
