ENVRI plus: Environmental research infrastructures providing shared solutions for science and society
The objective of ENVRI plus is to provide common solutions to shared challenges for European Environmental and Earth System Research Infrastructures (RIs) in their efforts to deliver new services for science and society. To reach this overall goal, ENVRI plus brings together the current ESFRI roadmap environmental and associate fields RIs, leading I3 projects, key developing RI networks and specific technical specialist partners to build common synergic solutions for pressing issues in RI construction and implementation.
ENVRI plus has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme under grant agreement no 654182. The project started in May 2015 and will continue until April 2019. It is coordinated by University of Helsinki.
EISCAT’s role in the project is to lead the activities in the project theme on Research Infrastructure access. The goal of this theme is to develop harmonised policies for access (physical and virtual) for the environmental RIs, including access services for the multidisciplinary users. EISCAT also participates in activities of the theme on data related issues. This theme has the aim to generate common solutions for shared information technology and data related challenges of the environmental RIs in data and service discovery and use, workflow documentation, data citations methodologies, service virtualisation, and user characterisation and interaction.
