WP1 - Project Management and Coordination
WP1 ensures the efficient administration and co-ordination of all project activities, focused on the achievement of the objectives of the project. It has two aspects: project management coordination and technical/scientific coordination.
WP2 - Requirements, use cases and usability, and evaluation
WP2’s objective is to identify existing VREs, to identify user requirements for the development of enhanced VREs, to develop use cases for the enhanced VREs, to develop an evaluation methodology, and to evaluate the enhanced VRE architecture, prototypes and use cases.
WP3 - Architecture, VRE development, integration and scalability
WP3’s objective is to define the architecture for an enhanced VRE, provide the development building blocks for such a VRE over and above that available in existing VREs, integrate those advanced building blocks in a model VRE that can be applied to existing VREs, develop prototypes, and ensure the design is scalable while respecting aspects of trust, security, privacy, provenance, preservation, citation and evaluation.
WP4 - Interoperability, metadata and research contextualization
WP4 provides the basis for interoperation (delivered by software through WP3) using contextual metadata. This basis consists of matching and mapping of metadata sets to CERIF and dealing within the mapping with the associated aspects of trust, security and privacy; provenance and preservation; citation and evaluation.
WP5 - Information management policy, security, privacy and VRE trustability
WP5 will develop strategies for handling issues related to security, privacy and trustability. It focuses on issues from the VRE4EIC project perspective, as well as on issues from the end-user perspective.
WP6 - Communities engagement and training
WP6’s objective is to identify existing VREs, to identify user requirements for the development of enhanced VREs, to develop use cases for the enhanced VREs, to develop an evaluation methodology, and to evaluate the enhanced VRE architecture, prototypes and use cases.
WP7 - Dissemination, exploitation and sustainability of the VRE, including standardisation
The objective of WP7 is to disseminate project results as widely and effectively as possible across three communities: VRE users, VRE developers, scientific VRE researchers, and data publishers who wish their data to be available to VRE users.
