e-Science is a methodology of scientific research that developed from the convergence of digital technologies and communication.

This technology, paired with interdisciplinary collaboration, has brought about the need to organize and effectively promote the “tools, knowledge and skills to effectively participate in networked science” and provide tools for effective data curation.
