After more than 20 years of research and innovation, on 25 April EPOS (European Plate Observing System), the European research infrastructure for solid Earth science, will
officially present its Data Portal to the scientific community which will gather in Vienna and online for the annual General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union 2023. Résif-Epos, soon Epos-France, has been actively involved in this vast project since its launch and will of course be present at this event, which will take place on Tuesday, April 25 from 7pm.
Furthermore, from 24 to 28 April, the EPOS community will meet scientists from all geoscience disciplines at the EPOS booth
The EPOS data portal is the result of a collective effort. Over the past 20 years, an international team of about 600 experts has worked synergistically on the integration and harmonization of more than 60 types of metadata from the various disciplines of solid Earth sciences, enabling interoperability. ICS (Integrated Core Services) is the core of the EPOS e-infrastructure and ensures interoperability between the data and services provided by TCS (Thematic Core Services) and NRIs (National Research Infrastructures). The ICS architecture is designed to provide the tools to facilitate the discovery of data, data products, software, and services and the integration of these resources to meet the demands of users throughout the EPOS community.
