EPOS Iceland is a collaborative project on construction of Research Infrastructures in the Earth Sciences to enable FAIR (Findable, Accessible, interoperable, Re-usable) open access to geoscientific data and services from Iceland.
The project is linked with the EPOS ERIC organization (European Plate Observing System), which started as an ESFRI project on the European roadmap for research infrastructure and Iceland has participated in the construction of EPOS from the beginning.
The purpose of EPOS is to strengthen the competitiveness of European Geosciences through improved access to multidisciplinary data, e-infrastructures, computation centers, and to research infrastructures at research and monitoring institutions.
The goal of EPOS Iceland is to construct e-infrastructures in Iceland in the form of powerful data services directly linked to the Integrated Core Services of EPOS ERIC. The e-infrastructure will provide direct access to important multidisciplinary data from Iceland and will allow processing and joint analysis (interoperable) with the other pan-European data in the other EPOS ERIC services
