This page outlines the purpose and intent of the eIUS 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.

The eIUS project aims to help UK researchers become more aware of the e-Infrastructure services that are available and how they can be successfully used to achieve specific research goals. Demonstrating in an accessible way how e-Infrastructure can be applicable to a whole range of disciplines, including the arts and humanities, is being achieved through the publication of a series of non-technical scenarios (also known as use cases) based on evidence gathered through interviews and observational studies with active UK researchers. The project also hopes to benefit those providing services to researchers – for example, data centres and national high performance computing facilities – by developing an understanding of service use that is sensitive to the overall context within which research is carried out and the ways in which researchers routinely “join up” different e-Infrastructure tools and services

eIUS videos on youTube.
We have released two videos highlighting the use of e-infrastructure in archaeology and bioinformatics. Around ten videos will be released, seven via eIUS and three via Engage.
