EPOS, the European Plate Observing System, is a multidisciplinary, distributed research infrastructure that facilitates the integrated use of data, data products, and facilities from the solid Earth science community in Europe.
EPOS ERIC has established several collaboration agreements with international organisations. The Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) signed by EPOS ERIC and other entities establish a framework of cooperation for information exchange, development of guidelines and standards for the exchange of data, among others.
The EPOS Delivery Framework can be defined as a truly international, federated framework encompassing the data and service provision integrated within the TCS and made interoperable with the central hub of the Integrated Core Services (ICS-C) the novel e-infrastructure for promoting FAIR data management.
EPOS produces a set of communication materials to present the infrastructure, as well as promote the most relevant resources, tools and services offered.
Official materials produced by EPOS are available on this page. For enquiries about the use of our logo, or any other matter related to graphic identity and communications, please contact our Communication Unit.
Near-Fault Observatories integrate data, products, and services within the EPOS community, relying on different Thematic Core Services. An important effort was to identify the metadata standards of NFO specific data and data products and to create a service for them.
The TCS mission is to provide coordination in between the European NFO, share data and products, promote best practice and define and implement the information and dissemination outreach strategy through the European Plate Observing System (EPOS).
