Abstract: Our aim is to construct, refine and deploy a prototype Virtual Research Environment (VRE) to enable teams of material scientists, academic and industrial engineers and instrument scientists to work together in undertaking, compiling, analysing, interrogating and visualizing multiple experiments on components of high complexity at different sites. These proof of concept tools will support multidisciplinary and geographically distributed teams. They will facilitate: interactive steering of 24-hour experiments between post-doctoral and PhD students on-site with senior researchers at home, enhance the student learning/training experience and identify exciting opportunities that arise during the experiment that are currently sometimes missed and reducing the number of experimental errors. The “Shared Workspace” will be heavily based on the JSR 168 standard with the enabled features of Web Services to be consumed via Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) by any JSR 168 compliant or non JSR 168 compliant, Java or .NET-based Web Portal. This allows extra portability between our developed web portlets and other web portal framework within the VRE community. We report our initial developments and findings in the deployment and analysis of the prototype VRE.
