Virtual Research Environments (VREs) offer new opportunities for collaboratively analysing open research data. This workshop builds on a workshop that we gave at CeDEM16 and aims to refine and discuss requirements for collaboratively analysing Open Government Data (OGD) and open research data through a secure, trusted and multidisciplinary VRE. Presentations about innovative use cases for reusing governmental and research data will be given, and participants will discuss and develop innovative use cases. The conditions for sharing their public or research data with others in a VRE will be discussed. This provides the basis for a discussion on the prioritization of requirements derived from the use cases. Participants are encouraged to provide their view on requirements for a VRE that offers governmental research data as well as directions for VRE projects.
