Consolidate research and innovation in the field of Earth Sciences and increase participation of Romanian organizations in European research through:
- increased visibility and access to multi-disciplinary interoperable data in the field of Earth Sciences, available at national and international level;
- development and implementation of modern informatic tools facilitating standardisation, integration and access to large volumes of data;
- coordination and operation of a distributed infrastructure capable of providing services, facilitating new research and leading to the development of new products based on these.
- Create a scalable national research platform representing a leap forward toward increasing scientific community capacity to answer fundamental scientific and socio-economic problems in the field of geo-hazards and geo-resources.
- Support and sustain the involvement of Romanian organizations to EU programs and create new collaboration opportunities with top institutions, through scientific capacity and expertise enhancing.
- Increase competitiveness in the industry and economy by facilitating the access to data or research products and removing technological barriers restricting their use.
- A national research platform populated with thematic services in the field of Earth Sciences, designed for a diverse community of users (from research, universities, private sector or general public).
- An inventory of infrastructures (organizations) which poses data, products and services relevant for Earth Sciences. Obtained information will be accessible through modern online instruments, customised according to user needs.
- A database of metadata describing in detail data, products and services available through the platform, as well as their access policies and modalities.
