EPOS (European Plate Observing System)
Convener: M. Cocco 
Wed, 22 Apr, 19:00–20:00  / Room 15

EPOS (European Plate Observing System) has been recently included in the European roadmap for research infrastructures after positive evaluation by ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures). EPOS will foster and support research on earthquakes, volcanoes, surface dynamics and tectonics, and will complement similar initiatives in satellite Earth observing systems and ocean sciences. EPOS’ main aim is to create a coherent Research Infrastructure enabling the next generation of scientists to pursue innovative and challenging solid Earth science research in Europe and in the Mediterranean regions. At this meeting we will present the current status of the project and discuss the future planning to create such a distributed research infrastructure.

The meeting is co-organized by INGV, ORFEUS
