This page provides information about the e-Uptake project which is one of the three Community Engagement and Support projects funded under the JISC e-Infrastructure programme. The aim of the programme is to enhance and consolidate the existing e-Infrastructure technologies and to establish sustainable communities of use. The Community Engagement and Support strand within this programme focuses on the broader take-up and more effective use of e-Infrastructure.As the project is coming to a close, we are beginning to publish the project deliverables here. We have also compiled a list of publications
produced by the project.

The e-Uptake project has collected evidence about the adoption of e-infrastructure and the training and support provision in the UK. On the basis of this evidence, it has developed a range of interventions to foster the user-base of JISC funded services. Involvement of actual or potential users of e-infrastructure services has been key element in this: we aim to provide the ground for a change in culture, in the way that researchers see their practice and the role that advanced information technologies play in their work. At the same time, we wish to provide service providers and technology developers with a sound grasp of problems as perceived by users. We have developed a UK 'one-stop-shop' for training material, event information and support contacts, which is accessible through the ENGAGE portal. Through training events and workshops, we have reached out to the stakholders of this project, from service providers, institutions, intermediaries such as e-Science centres to the researchers themselves. In addition to these tangible outcomes, we hope we have controbuted to a cultural change that will help to bring researchers and technologists closer together to achieve wider impact and sustainability.
