About Research Perspective

This is the website for the EPSRC funded ICT Perspectives Network EP/I038845/1.

This project will provide new ways of visualising the structure of existing research portfolios (e.g. EPSRC, BBSRC, FP7 and NSF). It is funded by EPSRC’s ICT programme and therefore focuses particularly on networking and visualisation of this portfolio. The project is divided into two main stages: the first will develop new ‘Perspectives’ (visualisations) on current portfolios, the second will use workshops to kick-start the use of these Perspectives for networking purposes.
