Public funding bodies in the UK and the US have published documents laying out a broadly similar vision for funding the development of e-infrastructures to support scientific collaborations. Analyzing these documents reveals much to commend in them as well as some weaknesses that could lead to failure to achieve their aims. One such weakness is lack of adequate recognition of the effect of the academic reward structure on the development and deployment of e-infrastructures.
