This splinter meeting invites all interested scientists to discuss how we can bring controlled/active source seismic data to the EPOS.
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. The EPOS Data Portal is a virtual platform where FAIR principles are put into practice, enabling access to data and products from more than 250 scientific data services across Europe. Data and data services provided by EPOS are defined in a bottom-up approach by the experts in the respective thematic communities. Organised as Thematic Core Services, these communities are also responsible for providing their data and data services to EPOS.

Seismic data are key to understanding the structure and composition of the lithosphere at different scales. However, seismic data are not available through EPOS, the only European research infrastructure for solid Earth sciences. Primarily, because EPOS is still lacking the support of a dedicated community. This splinter meeting is a community-building effort that reaches out to all colleagues who regard themselves as part of the wider controlled/active source seismics community, both data producers and data consumers. We want to inform about EPOS in general and propose options for the community to get involved.
