EPOS-ORFEUS Competence Center

EOSC-hub Competence Centre

ORFEUS coordinates the seismological waveform services in European Plate Observing System (EPOS). The ORFEUS European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA) federates eleven European seismological data centres into a common framework to offer: (a) long-term preservation of seismological data; (b) tools to access data and advanced seismological services and products; (c) a platform for the curation of seismological data and its description with canonical metadata and (d) procedures for attribution and citation.


The CC collects and assesses the requirements of the solid-Earth science community, with a specific focus on seismology, and addresses them by leveraging the EOSC-hub technical offerings.



  • the B2ACCESS service and integrated with four seismological data services. 
  • Data Staging service (DaSta) –  scenarios and use cases were defined as well as a technological selection was performed and a prototype was developed.
  • enabling scientific data analysis – The requirements for the generation of user-defined products were defined and technological solutions were selected. Two different solutions were tested: EGI Notebook deployed at GRNET and ResearchDrive with Jupyter integration at SURFsara.
  • Federated Data Lifecycle service (FeDaLi) –  A framework, named RuleManager, was developed that enables data centre operators to define and run data management policies.
