Virtual Research Environment  Social Networking  Science Gateway 

Science is in continuous evolution and so are the methodologies and approaches scientists tend to apply by calling for appropriate supporting environments. This is in part due to the limitations of the existing practices and in part due to the new possibilities offered by technology advances. gCube is a software system promoting elastic and seamless access to research assets (data, services, computing) across the boundaries of institutions, disciplines and providers to favour collaborative- oriented research tasks. Its primary goal is to enable Hybrid Data Infrastructures facilitating the dynamic definition and operation of Virtual Research Environments. To this end, it offers a comprehensive set of data management commodities on various types of data and a rich array of "mediators" to interface well-established Infrastructures and Information Systems from various domains. Its effectiveness has been proved by operating the D4Science.org infrastructure and serving concrete, multidisciplinary, challenging, and large scale scenarios. This paper gives an overview of the gCube system.
