NASA Solar Systems Exploration Research Virtual Institute

The NASA Solar Systems Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) was formerly NASA’s Lunar Science Virtual Institute. SSERVI is continuing to address basic and applied scientific questions fundamental to understanding the Moon, and will add investigations related to Near Earth Asteroids, the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos, and the near space environments of these target bodies.

Metis supported SSERVI in conducting evaluations of the effectiveness of virtual science collaborative events using subject matter experts with extensive expertise in the use of virtual collaborative technologies. Metis SME’s evaluate effectiveness of virtual collaborations and make recommendations to NASA to enhance and improve scientific collaboration within the virtual institute.
