Research meeting IT user needs


The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is the major funding agency for research in IT and Computer Science (IT/CS) in UK universities. Although 60% of its research portfolio is determined through proposals of the universities' own choosing, increasingly EPSRC is looking to industry to help shape and evaluate its programmes.

The NCC was appointed, by the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council), to manage a programme that helped to evaluate the IT research they fund. The EPSRC provides financial support for the majority of university IT research and this evaluation had a number of objectives, including:

  • To improve corporate understanding of EPSRC
  • To asses the match between IT sector business drivers and research priorities
  • To obtain user feedback on the content, and priority, of EPSRC programmes and training schemes
