Oxford's view of the 'VRE'?
“...the Research Technologies Service will continue to function as a centre of expertise supporting the development of research e-infrastructure, including e-science... seek to lead or collaborate on projects that pilot digital technologies on behalf of the University, in particular to contribute to the development of grid computing and e-science, virtual research environments, the construction of a CampusGrid, and ICT services for the support of research across divisions.” (Corporate Plan)
“[The RTS will] develop infrastructure and tools for the next generation of collaborative research environments and provide a communications forum, both internal and external, for Oxford's VRE activities. This will also help articulate subsequent responses from Oxford to future relevant funding opportunities. ” (OUCS five year plan)
