Igniting enthusiasm for ICT ICT Programme Workshop

Summary: -ExICTe-
Igniting enthusiasm for ICT
ICT Programme Workshop
Wednesday 17th
February 2010
Macdonald Burlington Hotel, Birmingham
Executive Summary
This workshop, organised by the ICT programme for EPSRC was attended by 44 members of
the UK ICT research community. EPSRC received 82 Expressions of Interest to attend the
workshop. Delegates were selected based on the Expression of Interest forms, to ensure a
balanced representation of institutions and expertise [1]
. This workshop was intended to bring
together researchers from across the ICT research community that have an interest in raising
the profile of ICT research. The event itself was seen to be both a valuable means of sharing
first hand experiences and a necessary preliminary activity in raising the profile of ICT. The
outputs of this workshop will feed directly into the ICT programme strategy and activities.
Key messages and observations taken from the ExICTe workshop are:
Motivators for igniting enthusiasm for ICT
Encouraging the next generation of students and researchers in the field.
Directing policy so that ICT can be seen as a central enabler for many other priorities.
