We have currently designed a set of middleware technologies which are being implemented to address issues such as trust, security, contract management and monitoring, information management and others to enable virtual collaboration between companies. In this paper we discuss the generic set middleware mechanisms we have implemented for enabling a virtual organization to operate as well as tools for designing and managing VO’s. We also draw attention to the requirements we gathered for the infrastructure, the majority of which stemmed from our industrial experience and interviews with chemical development companies.
