The e-Research Centre's activities within this area include working with the Oxford Internet Institute on Oxford’s Web Science Laboratory, part of a major international programme including some of the world’s leading academic researchers in Web Science.

We are also part of SOCIAM, a £12M research programme working towards giving society the ability to build the next generation of ‘social machines’, with capabilities ranging from solving routine tasks to handling emergencies.

Additionally the Centre is working with groups including the libraries to develop and build a range of knowledge infrastructures.
