    What is Cyberinfrastructure?

    "Cyberinfrastructure consists of computing systems, data storage systems, advanced instruments and data repositories, visualization environments, and people, all linked by high speed networks to make possible scholarly innovation and discoveries not otherwise possible." -- from IUITS Knowledge Base (What is Cyberinfrastructure?, IU)

    "Cyberinfrastructure is poised to revolutionize many science and engineering disciplines. Individual researchers will have the power of the world's highest-performance digital resources at their disposal." -- from Cyberinfrastructure (A Special Report, NSF)

    Cyberinfrastructure is often discussed together with e-Science, which include any science fields share teamed and networked research approaches.
