The project aims to support policy-related research activities within social science by developing appropriate Grid middleware tools which meet the requirements of social science practitioners, and builds upon the work of the earlier ESRC-funded FEARLUS-G pilot demonstrator project. The vision of the Semantic Grid is central to the PolicyGrid research agenda.
Computer scientists within the project team are working to develop new methods for querying and presenting results from Semantic Web resources, methods for lightweight metadata creation, techniques for creation of evidence structures from heterogeneous Grid services, and explicit characterisations of agent-based simulation workflow.
