Some of the processes undertaken may include things like data modelling and analysis.
Due to the vast amounts of data being dealt with, e-Science typically relies upon a large team. For example the CERN Large Hadron Collider produces huge amounts of data and has led to the development of e-Science and Grid infrastructures which are now also used by other disciplines.
Several centres in the UK support e-Science with projects in universities. These centres include Cambridge e-Science Centre, Centre for eResearch Bristol, and National Grid Service.
