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.
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).
SEComLab Gateway, 2 VREs / VLabs This gateway is an access point to the Virtual Research Environments (VREs) managed by INGV-Pisa (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Sezione di Pisa) for promoting collaborative research in Computational Solid Earth Sciences. The gateway hosts two VREs, for Computational Volcanology and Observational Seismology. The Virtual Research Environments offered by SEComLab provide their users with a web-based working environment offering collaborative access to data and computational tools, with specialized functionalities for the management, processing, and visualization of scientific data and model outputs. VREs also support the production of reports that require several people working together online in the drafting, reviewing and publishing of documents.
SoBigData Gateway, 16 VREs / VLabs SoBigData is an integrated ecosystem for ethic-sensitive scientific discoveries and advanced applications of social data mining on the various dimensions of social life. The aim of SoBigData is to establish the common vision and methodology at the basis of the Research Infrastructure activities. SoBigData establishes which is the nature of data science as a new discipline by enlightening which are the specific facets that make it at the same time interdisciplinary and unique when considering methods, theories and applications. Engagement is pursued through inviting prospect members of the community to specific workshops and conferences, putting together academia, industry and the public sector with the goal of exhibiting the key project results and collecting the requirements and feedback of these communities.
TerritoriAperti Gateway, 3 VREs / VLabs Interdisciplinary information system of "Territori Aperti" (see http://territoriaperti.univaq.it) for the prevention and management of natural disasters, as well as for the improvement of the processes of reconstruction and development of the affected areas. The system supports scientific research with the creation of new knowledge and skills through the management and enhancement of data and analytical processes. Territori Aperti, respecting the principles of Open Science, makes available to the communities of interest (citizens, public bodies and scientists) data, methods of analysis, scientific research results, tutorials and educational material for incentivized training also through national and international events .
