Three Keble fellows at the opening of the new e-Science Building

Friday 22 June 2007

Researchers looking to stimulate and support interdisciplinary work across the University have a new home - opposite the College at 7 Keble Road. The e-Science building was formally opened on 15 June by the Vice-Chancellor and houses two new centres and a variety of research groups dedicated to using innovative technology and training methods to improve interdisciplinary research and training.

The Directors of the new e-Research Centre are Professor Paul Jeffreys and Dr Anne Trefethen, both fellows of Keble, and the keynote speech at the opening was delivered by a third Keble fellow, Professor Sir Mike Brady. The Oxford e-Research Centre will play a crucial role in developing the University's research infrastructure and will include a new generation supercomputer available to the whole University.

To quote Paul Jeffreys,’The building will offer an exciting environment for the development and use of innovative computational and information technologies which facilitate new types of interdisciplinary research.  Furthermore, the new doctoral training centre also housed there will help attract the highest quality graduate students to the University'.
