Abstract:
Unilever is a large multinational and a market leader in the fast moving consumer goods business, with well known products in the sectors of home care, personal care, refreshments and foods. We are embracing new ways of doing R&D to deliver bigger, better, faster innovations to market, using high performance computing for eScience. The digital revolution, eScience, is already permeating everything we do at home: how could we pay our bills without eBanking, connect with our friends without Facebook, or find our way around without SatNav? The same revolution is helping us move faster at work. But how can we make this digital eScience revolution work for us?
