The Digital Research Environment (DRE) is a cloud based, globally available research environment where data is stored and organized securely and researchers can quickly generate workspaces to collaborate in and use the applications they love. Globally available and accessible 24/7. In times like these, where researchers have to work at home it offers a great possibility to still work on your research project. The DRE can be approached from any place in the world from any workplace.

Want to start working with the DRE?
Online we made an overview of all the possibilities the DRE can offer, and you will find use cases from colleagues who already work with the environment.
If you want to start yourself, you can request a DRE workspace by sending an email to RTC Datastewardship.

I am a student, does it also work for me?

Students without a Z-account can be added to a workspace by the Owner of a workspace. The owner first needs to request guest access for you by sending an e-mail with the following information to RTC Datastewardship:
  • Emailaddress (preferably the e-mailaccount of the institute you are working for)
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Mobile phone number (format +31 6 12 34 56 78)

DRE wiki

We can imagine a new environments come with questions on how to use it. For support on how to use the DRE, you can check our DRE Wiki page on the Internet. On a short notice some instruction video’s will be made available to help you start with the DRE.
