Creating a virtual research environment

Scientific research in the Earth Sciences is conducted on many different scales from the local to the global. Much of this research is becoming increasingly multidisciplinary and being conducted by researchers who are not necessarily co-located.

To support this increasingly distributed approach to Earth Science research there is a demand for virtualized collaborative working environments where researchers can share resources e.g. data, workflows, etc., ideas, knowledge, and results.


Validate the Virtual Research environment with four main virtual research communities

The VRE will be validated and evaluated through these four
real-world use cases which are provided by existing communities
of practice from the Earth Science domain.


Implement and validate the use of “Research Objects” in earth science

The EVER-EST project will define, implement and validate the use of “Research Objects” concepts and technologies in the Earth Science domain as a mean to establish more effective collaboration.
