  15. 15. www.epsrc.ac.uk/digitaleconomywww.rcuk.ac.uk/digitaleconomy www.rcuk.ac.uk/digitaleconomy @RCUK_DE Future of DE Theme "  Current RCUK Cross Council Themes established in response to a number of political drivers; DE in 2008 "  RCUK wants to support collaboration and working across and between disciplines; how best to do this in next CSR – 2016 onwards? "  RCUK is doing mapping to see where interdis activities fit in - lots of other activities e.g. John O’Reilly Sci & Tech White Paper, Capital Consultation. "  Different areas evolve and mature differently – some could have a central coordinating role, say for 5 years. Others may have huge research challenges taking them into the future for many years.
