WHAT IS VIRTUAL ACCESS?
To promote Open Research, VITALISE Project grants convenient Virtual Access to research datasets provided by the VITALISE Living Lab Network, selected during the Joint Research Activities and the ICT tools developed in the project. External researchers will be provided with the e-infrastructures needed to perform data analysis in existing datasets without the need for full access to data, thus providing effective data access, curation and analysis procedures.
Virtual Access will be implemented through the Discovery Portal. The Discovery Portal is a cloud-based platform designed to facilitate access and discovery of health-related datasets, with a particular focus on datasets that may not conform to a specific data model (Non-Data Model compliant datasets) and datasets indexed according to the VITALISE Data Model.
Through the Discovery Portal, users can navigate and discover tools to explore experiments performed by the Living Labs. To ensure the long-term availability and to secure research analysis results, the RAI Cloud Server registers information and research assets used in scientific experiments upon request from researchers.
