The European Commission's Directorate General for Information Society and Media has issued a call for tenders for a study on the role of e-infrastructures in the creation of global virtual research communities. The aim of this study is to measure the contribution of e-infrastructures to the creation of global virtual research communities and to define the ways of sustaining it in the future, in particular: - to identify the changes in the scientific process brought by e-infrastructures; - to measure the impact of e-infrastructures in socio-economic terms, taking into account this changing paradigm of science; - to identify the policy changes required to fully exploit the e-infrastructures (organisation; funding, etc.) and to ensure their sustainability.For further information, please contact: European Commission Directorate-General for Information Society and Media Directorate F - Emerging Technologies and Infrastructures Attn: Mr Jean-Luc Dorel Office BU25 4/72 Avenue du Bourget 1-3 B-1049 Brussels Tel. +32 2 295 1240 Fax +32 2 299 3127 E-mail: INFSO-RI-STUDY-GRVC@ec.europa.eu To see the full details of the call, please consult the following web address: http://ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:170658-2008:TEXT:EN:HTML
