Abstract: The Gaia satellite was launched by ESA in December 2013. Its primary objective is to determine the position, motion, brightness and colour of the stars in the Milky Way. The first Gaia data release, hosted at ESAC, will be publicly available in mid-2016. As Gaia data becomes available and reaches a wider audience, there is an increasing need to facilitate the further use of Gaia products. To address this need, the Gaia AVI portal (GAVIP) is to offer an innovative collaboration platform for scientists to deploy, close to the data, separately developed ‘Added Value Interfaces' (AVIs).
