The VRE4EIC project

The VRE4EIC project addresses key data and software challenges in supporting multidisciplinary data driven sciences. These include: 1)understanding complex user requirements across domains by closely involving committed user communities; 2) improving the quality of VRE user experience by providing user centred, secure, privacy compliant, sustainable environments for accessing data, composing workflows and tracking data publications; 3) increasing VRE usage in multidisciplinary research domains by abstracting and reusing building blocks and workflows from existing VRE initiatives; 4) improving the interoperability of heterogeneous discovery, contextual and detailed metadata across all layers of the VRE; and 5) promoting the exploitation of VRE4EIC solutions to different research communities and commercially. 

The VRE4EIC project covers all EU member states and EFTA countries, and will affect 70,000 researchers all over Europe.
