Earth science is multidisciplinary and requires access to data and products generated by different communities in different data formats and with different procedures. The study of the chemical and physical processes controlling volcanic eruptions and unrests does not escape this rule. Indeed, to understand volcano dynamics and hazards, researchers must rely on a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses geophysical, geological and geochemical studies, as well as experimental data and computational Earth science. EPOS (European Plate Observing System) fosters innovation in such a multidisciplinary environment by using human capital and infrastructures across different fields, technologies, and disciplines for better understanding the Earth dynamics. EPOS aims at creating a single but distributed infrastructure integrating the diverse and advanced European Research Infrastructures for solid Earth science in a common framework. The EPOS approach will enable the scientific community to study the same phenomena from a multidisciplinary point of view and at different temporal and spatial scales. In this framework, EPOS will ease the access, use and re-use of the multidisciplinary data, data products, software and services produced by the main European Volcanological Observatories and Volcanological Research Institutions. This step-forward of the volcanology community will make working side-by-side volcanologists, information and communication technology experts, decision makers, industries, and public to develop new knowledge, tools, and procedures for accurate, durable, and sustainable response to geo-hazards and geodynamic phenomena relevant to the environment and human welfare. Aside the invited talks, the wo kshop will host a round table on the role of research infrastructures in volcanology.
