Research Communities

Disaster Mitigation Competence Centre Plus (DMCC+)

The Disaster Mitigation Competence Centre Plus (DMCC+) community assembles and makes available simulation services for the support of climate and disaster mitigation research. 


ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing the increasing volume of data generated by publicly funded research. It coordinates bioinformatics resources across its member states and enables users in academia and industry to access what is vital for their research activities.

Radio Astronomy Competence Center

LOFAR (LOw-Frequency Array) is a new-generation radio interferometer constructed in the north of the Netherlands and across Europe to look at Universe through the lens of low radio frequencies, well outside the visible spectrum.

Marine Research Competence Centre

To understand the effects of global warming in marine environments, oceanographers analyse and interpret measurements of different physical and chemical parameters, such as temperature or salinity.

Fusion research

The Fusion Research Community of plasma physicists, engineers, materials scientists and robotics specialists have a clear but ambitious goal: to develop nuclear fusion technologies as a clean, abundant and inexhaustible source of energy for the future of all mankind.


ICOS is a pan-European research infrastructure for quantifying and understanding Europe’s greenhouse gas balance. Its mission is to collect high-quality observational data and to promote its use, e.g. to model greenhouse gas fluxes or to support verification of emission data.

EPOS-ORFEUS Competence Center

ORFEUS coordinates the seismological waveform services in European Plate Observing System (EPOS).

EISCAT_3D Agile Data

EISCAT_3D will be the world’s leading facility for research of the upper atmosphere and the near Earth space or the geospace environment. Construction kicked off in September 2017, with the first stage of the radar system expected to become operational in 2021. The EISCAT_3D facility will be distributed across three sites in Scandinavia, each over a 70m circular area and 10.000 antennas.
