    1. 1. From Training to Technology Transfer: experiences from an EU perspective in the Asia and Pacific region and opportunities/challenges presented by Cloud Computing David Fergusson
    2. 2. The problem We can build technologies and infrastructures. However without USERS this means nothing. Only when these tools are used (in this case to create new science) do they have any meaning. To do this we have to go out to the communities, they will not come to us.
