ORFEUS coordinates the seismological waveform services in European Plate Observing System (EPOS). EPOS is bringing together Earth scientists, national research infrastructures, ICT experts, and decision makers to develop new tools that answer societal questions concerning geo-hazards.
A dedicated EOSC-hub Competence Centre drives the collaboration between the project and the ORFEUS-EIDA federation of EPOS. The CC has been collecting and assessing the requirements of the solid-Earth science community, with a specific focus on seismology, and addresses them by leveraging the EOSC-hub technical offerings.
How EOSC can help and add value
The EOSC-hub Competence Centre delivers a software platform that facilitates access and exploitation of computational resources. It supports and fosters harmonisation of best practices for data management at ORFEUS-EIDA and it enables the generation of seismological products customised on user requirements.
By the end of the EOSC-hub project, the competence centre aims to have a pre-production quality, modular software platform that could be deployed at selected data centres.
