__Current Major Project PI  Responsibilities with associated funding:__
\\ \\
a)	Coordinator, OPTICON, the EC Optical-Infrared Coordination Network for Astronomy \\
b)	UK Principal Investigator, Gaia Data Reduction and Analysis Consortium \\
c)	UK STFC research funding support for Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge\\
d)	Gaia-ESO Public Spectroscopic Survey (Co-PI)\\
e)	Leverhulme Trust Senior research Grant\\
f)	European Research Council Advanced Research Grant
\\ \\
a) OPTICON: [http://www.astro-opticon.org]. Gilmore is Scientific  Coordinator, Executive Board Chair, and EC budget holder for OPTICON. EC contribution in FP6 was M€19.2, to a total activity budget of some M€35. In FP7  EC funding is M€10 (2009-2012), M€8.5 (2013-2016), and similar national support as in FP6. OPTICON is an enormously valuable contribution to the structuring and development of high-technology European astronomy, and facilitates continuing wide access to Europe’s 2-4m telescopes. The Scientific Coordinator role delivers management, project coordination and strategic leadership.
\\ \\
b) UK Gaia data reduction and analysis consortium: https://gaia.ac.uk. Gilmore is the UK PI and UK budget holder for all UK-based activities in support of the ESA Gaia mission. The UK leads responsibility for photometric data processing, for the real-time Science Alerts discovery and announcement activity, for implementation and operation of the Cambridge Gaia Data Processing Centre (DPCI), and has significant roles in the spectroscopic reduction and analysis activity. This activity is funded at M£13.6 2006-2012, M£12.8 2012-2018, and is planned to continue at a somewhat reduced level until 2022 (approx PI total project budget M£30 to 2018). This activity supports algorithm development, software and data processing effort (currently some 20 FTE staff), and is provided by the UK Space Agency. A substantial national public engagement effort is also implemented, with UK and EC funding support. 
\\ \\
c) UK STFC Postdoctoral funding for near-field cosmology at IoA Cambridge. Gilmore is PI of the Cambridge near-field cosmology group, which has typically two PDRA positions funded. These are focused on discovery and analysis of the dark matter and origins of ultra-faint dSph satellite galaxies, and photometric surveys. 
\\ \\
d) Gaia-ESO Public Spectroscopic Survey: [http://www.gaia-eso-eu]. Gilmore is Co-PI of the Gaia-ESO Survey, leading the (majority) Milky Way field survey aspects. Gaia-ESO has over 400 Co-I’s, and is the first large Public Spectroscopic Survey implemented on the ESO VLT facilities. Support is provided by the UK Leverhulme Trust (2012-2015; £250K), and an ERC Advanced Grant (2013-2018;M€2.5).
