The Exploration Series on Visions, Needs and Requirements for (future) Research Environments was driven by the following rationale: We believe that the more one thinks about preferred futures, the more one learns about the present. Thus, obtaining a better understanding on how research is changing to elaborate visions on how research may be conducted in 10 to 15 years is crucial to shape desirable ways into that future. In this respect, perspectives on the future of (European) research (infrastructures) should be broadened through continued exploration. We therefore hope both to establish continuous exchange and discussion beyond the end of the project, and to initiate systemic changes in the long term. Against this background, the present report identifies starting points for debate that are important to shaping research environments, rather than singling out the one path to the future of research by collecting immediate needs and requirements for (future) research environments.
