The University of Hull


The central objective of the eReSS study is to provide support to the JISC VRE Programme by helping to identify suitable solutions for the interoperability of Virtual Research Environment tools, applications, and resources. This will, of necessity, cover both ongoing activities within the VRE Programme and parallel activities in the wider Grid, eResearch and related environments of interest.

eReSS is running from March 2006 - February 2009, and will work in parallel with current and future VRE projects to support their need for information on interoperability and associated standards and specifications.

The major online output from the study is a wiki.
