The Action’s overall objective is to build a prototype for Data/High Performance Computing (HPC) services based on Earth sciences cases. The consortium will develop and provide new services to discover, manage and process spatial and environmental data produced by research communities tackling scientific challenges such as atmospheric, marine and earth observation issues.

More specifically, the Action will:

  1. create sustainable HPC data-powered services for earth, atmospheric and marine data for researchers, industry and public sectors;

2. leverage networking infrastructures such as GEANT (GN4-2 Research and Education Networking), RENATER (Réseau National de Télécommunications pour la Technologie, l’Enseignement et la Recherche), FUNET (Finnish University and Research Network), to ensure end-to-end scientific workflows;

3. unite infrastructure to infrastructure services, including authentication, access to resources (pre- and post- processing, management and preservation of large volumes of digital information over time), and;

4. define and create a FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable) portal for the scientific community and data providers.
