As part of the eRImote project, INTERACT-INPA is leading the Expert Group I on Quality Assurance and User experience on Remote and Virtual Access. The Expert Group aims to seek successful solutions and discuss current challenges in the Quality Assurance of Remote and Virtual Access services, as experienced by both the access providers and the researchers using the services.

The outcomes of the discussion from the Expert Group meetings will be compiled in D3.3 Summary report on workshops and expert groups, made also available to all Expert Group members, which will further feed into the eRimote Green Paper to foster the transition to a digital/remote provision of research infrastructure services across all RI domains.To reach these objectives, INPA will host regular online meetings during 2023 (2-3 in total).


Are you a researcher or Research Infrastructure manager with experience on Remote or Virtual AccessPlease register for the first workshop!


INPA is organising the first workshop of the Expert Group on Quality Assurance and User experience on Remote and Virtual Access: Challenges and Best Practices on the 3rd May 2023, 14:00-16:00 CEST. Here you can see the preliminary agenda of the workshop.

About eRimote project and Expert Groups

The eRImote project (European Research Infrastructures – Pathway to Improved Resilience through Digital and Remote Access) aims to identify strategies and solutions to enable the transition to more remote and digital access to Research Infrastructure (RI) services across ESFRI domains. You can learn more about the pathway to reach objectives and the work packages included in the project on the e-Rimote website.

WP3 “Remote Access Landscape Analysis” is responsible for collecting and analysing data on the current status and challenges of remote/digital access to Research infrastructure Services. The eRimote project team has therefore created five Expert Groups dedicated to addressing various questions related to Remote and Digital Access Provision:

  • Expert Group I on Quality Assurance and User Experience o Remote/Virtual Access (INTERACT Non-Profit Association, INPA)
  • Expert Group II on Data sharing, Data access and security (CESSDA-UKDS and CESSDA-ISSDA)
  • Expert Group III on Remote training for RI staff and researchers (Euro-BioImaging)
  • Expert Group IV on Remote Instrument control (Euro-BioImaging Bio-Hub)
  • Expert Group V on International access and accessibility of RI services (Instruct-ERIC)

You can see the full description of each Expert Group herePlease register your interest to one or more Expert Group if you have experience with the topics. The outcomes of the discussion of the Expert Groups’ meetings will feed into the eRimote Green Paper to foster the transition to a digital/remote provision of research infrastructure services across all RI domains.
