Technology Platform 3


Multi-disciplinary Community Databases

Leader: Ilan Noy

Supported By: TP3 Working Advisory Group


This Technology Platform fosters the contribution to, and utilisation of, existing community databases, as well as enabling the development of new disciplinary databases, and the extension of regional databases to a nation-wide scale. Research funded via QuakeCoRE will also contain the requirement that data contributed to a relevant community database, or the open-access QuakeCoRE web repository (where a relevant community database is not currently established), be available to the entire QuakeCoRE community as well as national and international end-users, within the constraints of privacy considerations.


Key Thrust Areas
