UK's e-infrastructure for research needs development

It may be too late to respond to the consultation (e-infrastructure for innovation and growth?) issued by the UK's research and education computer network JANET - but we'll be keeping an eye out for the results.

Their consultation was issued after JANET were asked to sit on the E-Infrastructure Leadership Council which has been created (in March 2012), co-chaired by David Willetts, Minister of State for Universities and Science, to co-ordinate the future governance and effective development of the UK’s research e-infrastructure.

It's worth checking out the consultation to see the kind of areas for development which JANET have in mind and for the link to the influential 2011 report 'A Strategic Vision for UK e-Infrastructure – A Roadmap for the Development and Use of Advanced Computing, Data and Networks'.
