Introduction Virtual Research Environments and Overview


Virtual Research Environments (VREs) are digital working platforms which enable scienctists to work cooperatively in a time- and location-independent way. Due to the increase of digital research data and the international collaboration of researchers, VREs gain in importance. Numerous VREs have been developed in different projects to support the work of researchers in a variety of disciplines. However, the thematic focus and functionality differ between available VREs. The new fact sheet summarizes important information about and requirements for VREs. In addition to the fact sheet we developed a summary of currently existing VREs for different disciplines which gives an overview over their scope and functionality.
