                                   INFRA-2010-1.2.3: Virtual Research Communities
•   General objectives:
     –   Enable an increasing number of users from all disciplines to access, share and use
         e-Infrastructures (facilities, instruments, software data
     –   Remove constraints of distance, access and usability, as well as barriers between
         disciplines for a more effective scientific collaboration and innovation

•   More specifically:
     –   Deployment of e-Infrastructures in research communities to enable multi-
         disciplinary collaboration
     –   Deployment of end-to-end e-infrastructure services and tools for integrating and
         increasing research capacities
     –   Build user-configured virtual research facilities and test-beds from collection of
         diverse resources
     –   Address human, social and economic factors to facilitate the creation, take
         up/maintenance of e-Infrastructure services
     –   Integrate and link regional e-Infrastructures

     Expected impact:
     Increased effectiveness of European research through the broader use of e-
        Infrastructures by research communities; the emergence of virtual research
        communities of European and international dimension that cannot be achieved by
        national initiatives alone;
