The Objectives and Outcomes of VITALISE Project
Objectives. In order to address the challenge of convenient and open access to research infrastructures, VITALISE proposes the following macro objectives, which are aligned with the strategic goals of the Health and Wellbeing Living Labs Action Oriented Task Force of ENoLL, the EIT Health LLs and the Forum LLSA:
- Effective and convenient Transnational and Virtual access provided for research activities beyond the consortium partners. That is open access for researchers to conduct research by being physically present in one of the consortium’s Living Lab infrastructure or access and analyse remotely already collected data.
- Design and adopt beyond the state of the art ICT tools and e-infrastructures for data, computing and networking, and ensure connection to the European Open Science Cloud
- Knowledge sharing and training of researchers to optimally exploit all the essential Living Lab tools for their research
- Transnational Collaboration established among and beyond the consortium partners.
Outcomes. VITALISE outcomes are summarized in two (2) main complementary elements: 1) the ICT tools for providing effective and convenient Virtual Access to researchers, and 2) the improvement and harmonization of services and procedures provided to researchers.
