Infrastructure management is largely independent of the specific domain in which researchers use the facilities and services offered. This project will therefore look to expand the ARIA platform, an existing tool within life sciences to other domains, starting with the social sciences. ARIA includes an internal content management system, which allows the infrastructure’s institutions to make internal and external documents accessible to the right users. Its architecture is specifically designed to match the needs of a distributed infrastructure.
This project looks to extend the functionalities of ARIA to cover the needs of research infrastructures and facilities in other thematic areas. Although these thematic areas differ significantly from the life sciences, the internal management processes and requirements for most distributed research infrastructures are very similar across all areas. Still there will be differences. Still, while ARIA is modelled around access to instruments, in the social sciences access may be requested to restricted data held in secure rooms and in different physical locations.
