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.
iMarine Gateway, 10 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.
RISIS2 Gateway, 2 VREs / VLabs The H2020 RISIS2 Project is organised around 3 major dimensions and activities, namely (i) a front end, focusing on users, the ways they access RISIS, work within RISIS and build RISIS user communities. At the core is the RISIS Core facility (WP4). The core facility supports virtual transnational access (WP8) and is accompanied by all the efforts we do to raise awareness, train researchers and interact with them (WP2) and to help them build active user communities (mobilising D4Science VRE, WP7). (ii) A service layer that helps users organise problem based integration of RISIS datasets (with possibilities to complement with their own datasets), this entails the data integration and analysis services (WP5) and methodological support for advanced quantitative methods (WP6) and (iii) a data layer that gathers the core RISIS datasets that we maintain (WP5) and enlarge (WP9), the datasets of interest for which we insure reliability and harmonisation for integration (WP4), and the new datasets that we develop and will progressively open (WP10).
