anDREa is the successor of DRE. DRE was already on the NWO roadmap 2016 in the GWI-cluster ELIXIR-NL. anDREa is a digital environment where a researcher has access to and works with all their own data, analytics, and tooling. The DRE makes live of a researcher easier and more productive, it is:
- Secure
- Self-serviced (invite people, adapt policies to your study, bring-your-own-tools etc.)
- Capable of real-time collaboration
- Provides data and process audit trails
- Auditable (compliant with laws & regulations).
What makes anDREa unique is that it provides the researcher all the above in an institution context. When a project is started in anDREa, the selected institution implies governance, policies, and access rules.

anDREa took shape when the CIO's of five UMC's explored shared use of DRE in a new governance with an equal say. Erasmus MC, UMC Utrecht and Radboudumc took the lead and started anDREA. SURF was asked to propose a service model.
