SeRC supports a number of communities that connect application oriented groups with relevant core e-Science groups in the SeRC Research platform and the SeRC Services and infrastructure platform. Each of the supported communities comprises computer experts, e-Science method developers and scientists from application areas who jointly run e-Science projects. The projects will be characterized by strong novelty in terms of technology (high end computing, novel architectures, grid, databases, etc.), methodology (new theories, models, methods, algorithms and software) and application (new application areas with large potential gains from e-Science tools).
SeRC has appointed and funds one coordinator for each e-Science community. The main task of the coordinator is to initiate and manage the SeRC e-Science projects. The coordinator will also be responsible for a range of community activities including organization of events, as well as liaising with other national and international communities.
