Brief Description of the project
VRE4EIC (A Europe-wide Interoperable Virtual Research Environment to Empower Multidisciplinary Research Communities and Accelerate Innovation and Collaboration) develops a reference architecture and software prototypes (under the name of e-VRE, for enhanced VRE) to be used for future VREs including building blocks that can be used to improve existing VREs. The project addresses the key data and software challenges in supporting multidisciplinary data driven sciences.
Collaboration with Other Initiatives
Achievements so far
The activity on user engagement has proceeded with the organization of additional workshops, as detailed in the next section below.
Community engagements activities
In the past few months VRE4EIC has been very active regarding community engagement and the organization of evaluation workshops. Some important events we organized in 2018 include the following:
• On January 18, 2018 CWI and UvA organized a workshop in the context of IT4RIs 18. Community feedback confirmed that VRE4EIC is addressing the right problems to improve eVRE functionality, but also that many of the core AAAI issues require standardization efforts that make the VRE4EIC project dependent on other projects.
• TU Delft organized a workshop during the internal project meeting in February 2018. Using the online tool Mentimeter, a SWOT analysis was conducted. The workshop showed that the strengths of VRE4EIC mainly concern the modularity, interoperability, reusability and scalability of the VRE building blocks. Identified areas for improvement include the sustainability and security, the development of improved documentation for developers and the provision of source code and the demonstration of concrete scenarios to reduce the complexity of the e-VRE for the users. From this workshop, the project consortium derived several concrete action points.
VRE4EIC upcoming events and workshops
VRE4EIC will organize many more workshops. Please join us at one of the following events!
