Project description
EPOS, the European Plate Observing System, is an open-access e-infrastructure platform for distributed pan-European geoscientific research infrastructure and aiming to be the principal source of data and tools geosciences. EPOS will simplify and speed-up the process of combining information from different fields of geophysics. EPOS opens new possibilities for cross-cutting and innovative research in Earth Sciences and their applications for society as well as for raw material and energy exploration. The FIN-EPOS consortium partners (UH, UOULU, AALTO, GTK, FMI, FGI, VTT-MIKES, CSC) own and operate the geophysical and geodetic observatory, laboratory and data center RIs in Finland. Through FIN-EPOS webpages and entry portal Finnish academia, students, decision makers, industry and citizens can use large multidisciplinary open access data sets. Funding is sought for Finland's full membership in EPOS-ERIC national co-ordination and outreach.
