This report describes the results of the first evaluation carried out for the use-case specific VREs in WP6 (food safety risk assessment). The evaluation has been carried out according to the assessment methodology and schedule described in the Food Safety Risk Assessment Community-Centred Assessment Plan (D6.3). As a result of this assessment it can be stated that the established use-case specific VREs already provide a high number of useful and highly valuable functionalities for the two scientific communities. The high interest of these communities in these new VRE resources already becomes evident by the number of non AGINFRA+ scientists that registered as VRE members (DEMETER VRE: 16; RAKIP VRE: 19). Further WP6 also successfully promoted the AGINFRA+ VRE technology in additional scientific communities besides those addressed in the two WP6 use cases. As a result the AGINFRA+ project supports an additional VRE for the ORION project which is funded under the European One Health Initiative research project (currently 31 external members).
In summary the mid-term evaluation of current use-case specific AGINFRA+ resources resulted in very positive results and feedback by the corresponding research communities. Also, it can already be anticipated that both use-case communities will be interested in maintaining their VREs over the duration of the AGINFRA+ project.
