  • VRE definition
    A VRE comprises a set of online tools and other network resources and technologies interoperating with each other to facilitate or enhance the processes of researchpractitioners within and across institutional boundaries.
    A key characteristic of a VRE is that it facilitates collaboration amongst researchers and research teams providing them with more effective means of collaboratively collecting, manipulating and managing data, as well as collaborative knowledge creation.
