"What is a Virtual Research Environment?" explained by Keith Jeffery
In the frame of the VRE4EIC project, tutorials are currently being produced explaining the use and benefits of the results of VRE4EIC.
- What is a Virtual Research Environment
- e-VRE architecture design & microservices concept
- Managing metadata in Virtual Research Environments
- Analysing open data in Virtual Research Environments: New collaboration opportunities to improve policy making
- Search and discovery of metadata in an enhanced VRE - The VRE4EIC Metadata Portal (Part 1 & 2)
- How Research Infrastructures can take advantage of interoperable VRE building blocks (Part 1 & 2)
- AAI Authentication & Authorization Infrastructure (Trust Part 1) & Trustable computing in Open Science (Trust Part 1)
- Node & application service tutorial
- The ENVRIplus use case

Analysing open data in Virtual Research Environments: New collaboration opportunities to improve policy making
This video clarifies in which ways VREs support researchers in open data analysis. Seven cases presenting different modes of researcher support for open data analysis were investigated and compared. Four types of support were identified: 1) ‘Figure it out yourself', 2) ‘Leading users by the hand', 3) ‘Training to provide the basics' and 4) ‘Learning from peers'. This video is related to the open access paper "Analysing Open Data in Virtual Research Environments: New Collaboration Opportunities to Improve Policy Making"
Maria Theodoridou presents the VRE4EIC Metadata Portal. The first part of the tutorial introduces the core components and explains how to construct a basic query. The second part demonstrates advanced features of the portal: how to use the geographical map, how to expand basic into complex queries, and how to store and load queries.
Daniele Bailo explains how an existing Research Infrastructure such as the European Plate Observation Sytem is enhanced by the building blocks provided by VRE4EIC
Trust Part 1: The VRE4EIC AAI - Authentication & Authorization Infrastructure is explained by Jacco van Ossenbruggen from CWI in part 1 of this tutorial on trust.
Every Web application that provides access to expensive services or sensitive data needs to ensure this access is only given to trusted persons at the right time for the right reasons. Modern Authentication & Authorization Infrastructures provide scalable, federated solutions for this requirement. This video discusses the basic technical and organizational concepts of federated authentication and authorization protocols.
Trust Part 2: Trustable Computing in Open Science
When and why should you trust research datasets, the computations used to analyze them, and the conclusions drawn from the analyis results? In this video, we discuss the extent to which research data and research software can be subjected to a fit for use assessment, and how to improve upon the traditional approach where only the academic paper is published after peer review, while research data and research software used to produce the results in the paper remains unavailable for critical analysis and reuse by others.
