These are my slides from the UK E-Infrastructure Academic User Community Forum meeting in Oxford on September 10th 2013. I introduce HPC Midlands and the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) e-Infrastructure SIG, and discuss feedback from industry on engaging with e-Infrastructure. The talk closes with some thoughts on how we can nuture the next generation.
