The Summer of eResearch is a Ministry of Science and Innovation funded scholarship programme. The programme is delivered by the University of Auckland, with national participation. Software engineering and computer science students work with research communities to provide supporting tools, services, and infrastructure.

The aims of the programme are:

  • to establish working relations between academics and students in computing fields with researchers from other disciplines
  • to grow capabilities in eResearch, including growth in awareness of contemporary methods and approaches to support collaborative and computing intensive research problems
