The exceptional increase in computing power, storage capacity and network bandwidth of the past decades forms the basis of a digital revolution, which has only just started. Also the changing scale and scope of experimental science require a new research paradigm: (digitally) enhanced science or e-Science.

The aim of the Virtual Laboratory for e-Science (VL-e) project is to bridge the gap between the technology push of the high performance networking and the Grid and the application pull of a wide range of scientific experimental applications. It will provide generic functionalities that support a wide class of specific e-Science application environments and set up an experimental infrastructure for the evaluation of the ideas.
