Short Description:

EPOS is a pan-European infrastructure for sharing solid Earth Science data, observations, and research results. With its innovative IT platform, EPOS enables sharing and integration of data collected by the research infrastructures from 25 European countries. EPOS architecture is designed for sustainability and provides services to scientists, national authorities, and society.
The main goals of the EPOS workshop are to introduce the participants to the EPOS European Infrastructure and to engage them in a practical training session on the basic functionalities offered by the EPOS Data Portal. This workshop target participants are both students and researchers. It will also facilitate the maximum interaction between experts and participants and provides an opportunity for the latest to indicate their requirements in the context of their institutions.
In the first module, the participants will get a brief overview of about what EPOS is and what are its benefits to research and society followed by dedicated training on the use of EPOS Data Portal, focusing on its basic functionalities. The portal offers access to a broad collection of data, data products, and services from nine thematic solid Earth Science fields and it is constantly improving and addressing the needs of researchers.
