One of the difficulties in VO and VT creation is partner selection using partners' mutual trust as one of the selection criteria. This correspondence provides an analysis of trust relationships based on the principal-agent theory, and proposes an approach to hierarchical multiattribute decision-support-based trust estimation applied to a network of collaborating organizations (VO) and a network of collaborating individuals (VT).
