Scientific Advances and Information Technology: Meeting Researchers’ Needs in a New Era of Discovery

Tuesday, June 1, 2010


This ECAR case study from the University of Washington discusses the key findings of the University of Washington “Conversations with UW Researchers” project and the UW 2008 Faculty Survey on Learning and Scholarly Technologies. Findings from both projects were used to identify resources and services that UW Technology, the eScience Institute, and other UW units can offer to support researchers. This report also covers the actions that UW has taken in response to these findings to expand and enhance its support of researchers. This report builds from the March 2009 ECAR research bulletin, Information Technologies for eScience: A Preliminary Report from the University of Washington.
