SocSciVre? Cambridge To provide and support the Sakai platform for large, distributed social sciences research projects. The focus is on activities to investigate the needs of the TLRP researchers and to evaluate the extent to which Sakai meets those needs. Social Science, TLRP project SakaiPortal, DSpace Possibly WSRP http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=project_sakai_edu_research
PoliticsVre? East Anglia To develop a virtual research and research skills development environment, capable of expansion and of facilitating multiple participation in the rapidly evolving field of the history of political discourse. History of political discourse 1500-1800 SakaiPortal, AccessGrid JSR168, possibly WSRP http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_political_discourse
SakaiPortalVre Lancaster To address the requirement for a single point of access to a comprehensive set of Grid and collaboration services in a VRE. Generic collaboration and research tools SakaiPortal and WebServices WSRP, JSR168, Shibboleth http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_sakai_portal
GrowlVre Cambridge To build upon the existing prototype GROWL library to produce a truly lightweight extensible toolkit which complements other solutions. Bio-informatics, Chemistry and Stats WebServices, AccessGrid and SakaiPortal   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_growl
IbVre Oxford To develop a VRE demonstrator to investigate the utility of existing collaborative frameworks to support the entire research process of a large-scale, international research consortium. Integrative Biology uPortal WSRP, JSR168, Shibboleth http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=ibvre
HumVre? Oxford To build a VRE for the Humanities by investigating how Humanities research can benefit from ICT and by constructing demonstrators in specific fields. Humanities     http://bvreh.humanities.ox.ac.uk/
EvieVre Leeds To test the integration and deployment of key existing software components within a portal framework. Institutional VRE BodingtonVKP   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_evie
ElviVre Nottingham To produce and demonstrate a practical framework for the effective deployment of a generic VRE. Generic Research business process SunGardSCT?   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_elvi
AccessGridVre? Manchester Extend the Access Grid's VRE infrastructure with new collaboration functionalities from the CoAKTinG? project. Generic collaboration AccessGrid   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_access_grid
CheshireVre? Liverpool To identify and integrate a number of tools and technologies for the data grid and digital library communities which will support collaborative e-Research across institutions and domains using Sakai. Digital Libraries SakaiPortal and CheshireSoftware? JSR 168, JSR 170, possibly OKI  
CsageVre? Manchester To construct and use of semi-immersive stereoscopic facilities to create an increased level of ‘presence’ within the Access Grid environment and the recording of the performance, in the same format, within a framework playable by a larger community base as and when required. Arts and Humanities AccessGrid   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_sage
CoreVre? Southampton To provide integrated computer support across the research and educational cycles, because these activities are intrinsically coupled as a part of the requirements of the surgeon’s Continuing Professional Development. Orthopaedic Surgeons Chandler SOAP, WSDL/OWL, and JSR-168 http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_core
SilchesterVre? Reading To develop a system to facilitate rapidly developing and iterative archaeological research by synchronising the three processes of gathering information, co-ordinating expertise, and managing the resulting body of data. Silchester Roman Town SakaiPortal   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_silchester
IsmeVre? Manchester To develop and refine the experimental steering process, shared workspace and distributed visualisation into a VRE making them deployable by dispersed teams of instrument scientists, material scientists and engineers in a transparent and robust manner. Materials Science GridSphere and AccessGrid   http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_isme
IugoVre? Bristol To develop a proof of concept system to enable the integration of web-based content (and references to non web-based content), related to individual conferences and individual sessions within conferences, thus providing a means to provide far great benefit to the wider research community than is currently available from conference attendance. Generic conference organisation   W3C? , Metadata standards and ontologies/ vocabularies, WSDL, WSRP, JSR168 and OGSI, RSS http://www.jisc.ac.uk/index.cfm?name=vre_iugo
