CROSS DRIVE targets on creating the foundations for collaborative distributed virtual workspaces for European space science.


Space exploration missions have produced huge data sets of potentially immense value for research as well as planning and operating future missions. However, currently expert teams, data and tools are fragmented, leaving little scope for unlocking this value through collaborative activities.
