EVER-EST: The virtual research environment
The EVER-EST project (EU Horizon 2020 e-Infrastructures) enhances Research and Capacity Building in the Earth Science (ES) domain, by providing a generic Service Oriented-based Architecture Virtual Research Environment (VRE) tailored to the needs of the Earth Science (ES) community. The full range of both generic and ES data management specific services provided by EVER-EST facilitates the dynamic approach to collaborative working and research.
Scientist are able to discover, access, process, share and interoperate heterogeneous data, algorithms, results and experiences within and across their communities, including those in domains beyond Earth Science. Data providers will be able to monitor users experience and collect feedback through the VRE, improving their capacity to adapt to end-user needs offering solutions to unlock scientist potentials and creativity.
EVER-EST e-infrastructure is validated by four Virtual Research Communities (VRC) covering different multidisciplinary working ES domains: ranging from Sea Monitoring, to Natural Hazards (floods, weather, wildfires), Land Monitoring and Risk Management (volcanoes and seismic). Each of these VRC uses the VRE according to its own specific requirements for data, software, best practices and community engagement.
