e-Horizons Project

The e-Horizons project was established through funding from the Oxford Martin School from 2005-2009. A summary of outcomes from the project can be found at the e-Horizons website.

the project

The Project aimed to identify and explore the potentially most significant ICT-related breakthroughs in the sciences, humanities and other disciplines and how these might shape the future of communication in our increasingly networked society.

It was a joint collaboration between the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) and the Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC).

It included a multidisciplinary network of engineers, computer scientists and social scientists at Oxford and other world centres of e-science research.

The project ended in 2009 with the publication of a book entitled: World Wide Research: Reshaping the Sciences and Humanities. This explores the intersection of research with new opportunities offered by developments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).
