WP4: Data Access and Data Interoperability (DADI )


Make the ESFRI and pathfinder project data available for discovery and usage by the whole astronomical community, interoperable in a homogeneous international framework, and accessible with a set of common tools. More specifically:

  • Train and support ESFRI project staff in the usage and implementation of the VO framework and tools, and make them active participants in the development of the VO framework definition and updates, thus contributing to relevance and sustainability of the framework.
  • Train and support the wider astronomical community in scientific use of the framework, in particular for pathfinder data, and gather their requirements and feedback.
  • Adapt the VO framework and tools to the ESFRI project needs, and make sure European astronomers remain lead actors in the IVOA, influencing it in the interest of the European infrastructures and the European scientific community.
