The following Infrastructure Gateways serve a number of Research Communities, each of which having a specific scientific domain and dedicated Virtual Research Environments / Virtual Laboratories.
I-GENE Gateway, 1 VRE / VLab [Temporary Description] The I-GENE (In-vivo Gene Editing by NanotransducErs) project pushes the boundaries of efficient and reliable ways to make precise, targeted changes to the genome of living cells that is the long-standing and main goal of gene therapy and biomedical researchers. The I-GENE Gateway and its VREs are a ready to use web-based working environments specifically conceived to provide the I-GENE worldwide community with the needed facilities (services, data, capacity), in line with the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable) principles. The VREs provide an environment to foster large-scale collaborations where many potentially geographically distributed co-workers can access and process large amounts of data, also by promoting the public debate to support the design of a new strategy/technology for genome editing, ethically acceptable, sustainable and society desirable.
iMarine Gateway, 22 VREs / VLabs This gateway is an access point to a number of Virtual Research Environments deployed and operated in the context of the past iMarine EU FP7 project to support the Ecosystem Approach to fisheries management and conservation of marine living resources. It empowers practitioners and policy makers from multiple scientific fields such as fisheries, biodiversity and ocean observation by ensuring that otherwise dispersed and heterogeneous data is available to all stakeholder communities through a shared virtual environment that brings together multidisciplinary data sources, supports cross-cutting scientific analysis, and assists communication. It offer specialized functionalities for the management, processing, and visualization of scientific data and textual content.
OpenAIRE-Connect Gateway, 6 VREs / VLabs OpenAIRE-Connect aims to provide technological and social bridges, and deliver services enabling uniform exchange of research artefacts (literature, data, and methods), with semantic links between them, across research communities and content providers in scientific communication. It will introduce and implement the concept of Open Science as a Service (OSaaS) on top of the existing OpenAIRE infrastructure, delivering out-of-the-box, ondemand deployable tools. OpenAIRE-Connect Gateway supports the adoption of an end-user driven approach (via the involvement of 5 prominent research communities), and enrich the portfolio of OpenAIRE infrastructure production services with a Research Community Dashboard Service and a Catch-All Notification Broker Service.
PARTHENOS Gateway, 6 VREs / VLabs PARTHENOS is a H2020 EU Project (Pooling Activities, Resources and Tools for Heritage E-research Networking, Optimization and Synergies). This gateway supports the project strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields through a thematic cluster of European Research Infrastructures, integrating initiatives, e-infrastructures and other world-class infrastructures, and building bridges between different, although tightly, interrelated fields.
PerformFISH Gateway, 3 VREs / VLabs PerformFISH Gateway serves the EC-funded PerformFISH project officially launched in Volvos, Greece, on 15-16 May 2017 with the aim of exploring and tackling the underlying causes behind the stagnation of the Mediterranean Marine Fish Farming (MMFF) sector. Over the next five years, PerformFISH will work to ensure sustainable growth of the Mediterranean aquaculture industry, based on consumer perceptions and real market requirements. It aims to support fish farms that operate not only in ideal economic and environmental conditions but also in a socially and culturally responsible manner. With 28 partners across the aquaculture value chain, PerformFISH consists of a strong multi-stakeholder partnership, including significant collaboration and support from the five Fish Farming Associations representing 92.8% of EU sea bream and sea bass production.
