Engineering software platform supports engineering activities in continuously widening disciplinary area of complex systems operated industrial and commercial products and other engineering achievements. Engineering activities increasingly include research extending the conventional product lifecycle engineering to the whole innovation cycle. Comprehensive engineering platform comprises wide range of integrated software solutions to manage complex model systems to represent situation controlled autonomous products and offers all software solutions necessary for the integrated innovation and life cycle. By now, engineering platforms are amongst the largest and most complex applications of advanced software. This paper reports recent contributions to concept and methodology of research integration representations for engineering model systems using research capabilities of engineering platform. First, concept on model organized research project (MORP) is introduced. MORP is a new model system based concept of research project which is managed using capabilities of software organized in these platforms. MORP relies on the formerly defined concept of model mediated research (MMR) which is extended to research in situation control of autonomous functions of the represented systems operated engineering achievements recognizing that situation control reorganizes engineering related research to a great extent. Following this, connection of MORP with software which provides situation based control for physical execution in cyber physical system (CPS) is analyzed and discussed. The MMR based MORP is about pilot projecting at the recently established virtual research laboratory (VRL) at the Doctoral School of Applied Informatics and Applied Mathematics (DSAIAM) at the Óbuda University.
