What is a VRE?


Have been looking into what a Virtual Research Environment is.

JISC has a programme which aims to:

  • building and deploying VREs based on currently available tools and frameworks
  • assessing their benefits and shortcomings in supporting the research process
  • improving and extending them to meet the future needs of UK research
  • developing or integrating new tools and frameworks where appropriate solutions do not yet exist

Two videos from JISC (WMV format) provide a useful and quick overview from a research point of view and then the technical solutions.
