Earthquake and seismology research addresses fundamental problems in understanding the Earth's internal wave sources and properties, thereby aiding society in the management of natural hazards, energy resources, environmental changes, and national security.

VERCE is supporting this effort by developing a data-intensive e-science environment to enable innovative data analysis and data modelling methods that fully exploit the increasing wealth of open data generated by the observational and monitoring systems of the global seismology community.

VERCE's strategy is to build upon a service-oriented architecture and a data-intensive platform delivering services, workflow tools, and software as a service, and to integrate the distributed European public data and computing infrastructures (GRID, HPC and CLOUD) with private resources and the European integrated data archives of the seismology community.

VERCE is a major contribution to the e-science environment of the European Plate Observing System LogoEPOS, the ESFRI initiative of the solid Earth community. VERCE is in synergy with the European Infrastructures (PRACE and EGI), and a number of European projects of the seismology and IT communities.
