Education in an interdisciplinary scenario is usually delivered through university courses, focussed training events and workshops provided by specialised scientific institutes. As a result, there can often be a gap in making the necessary technological support available to scientists, trainees and students.

All the steps in preparing courses and workshops require:

  • manual work, which is repeated each time a new course is held.
  • installation of complex software on the users’ computers to enable use of data processing services and models that usually come under heterogeneous programming languages.
  • an extensive phase of data preparation and powerful hardware installation to allow the execution of the data-intensive models.

In addition, the interaction between teachers and students is usually limited to the duration of the face-to-face part of the course.

BlueBRIDGE offers you Virtual Research Environments (VREs) to set up and deliver training courses in a cost-effective way. The BlueBRIDGE VREs are collaborative, web-based applications which enable collaboration and integrated access to potentially unlimited digital research resources, as well as cross-disciplinary and cross-community tools and services.
