Welcome to the D4Science.org Wiki.

D4ScienceAn e-Infrastructure operated by the D4Science.org initiative..org is an organisation offering a Hybrid Data Infrastructure service and a number of Virtual Research Environments (VREs).

The D4ScienceAn e-Infrastructure operated by the D4Science.org initiative..org HDI is operated by relying on gCube, an open source software system specifically designed to develop and operate HDIs enabling the creation of VREs.


The Wiki main areas are:

  • the Infrastructure Deployment and Operation reporting information on Procedures, Policies, Resources and Plans governing the deployment and operation of the infrastructure supporting the iMarine project;
  • the VRE Deployment and Operation reporting information on Procedures, Policies and Plans governing the deployment and operation of Virtual Research Environments serving the needs of scenarios for the Ecosystem Approach Community of PracticeA term coined to capture an "activity system" that includes individuals who are united in action and in the meaning that "action" has for them and for the larger collective. The communities of practice are "virtual", ''i.e.'', they are not formal structures, such as departments or project teams. Instead, these communities exist in the minds of their members, are glued together by the connections they have with each other, as well as by their specific shared problems or areas of interest. The generation of knowledge in communities of practice occurs when people participate in problem solving and share the knowledge necessary to solve the problems.;
