Abstract: In a world-wide scale, collaborations in earthquake engineering lack a common interoperability framework, resulting in tedious and complex procedures to integrate data and results. Up to now, the most significant effort in Europe towards the interoperability of earthquake engineering experimental data was the SERIES project (Seismic Engineering Research Infrastructures for European Synergies) in the period 2009 - 2013. Global sharing of seismological data has been a long-lasting tradition tracing back to the beginning of the previous century. Recently, the ESFRI (European Strategic Forum for Research Infrastructures) initiative and the EPOS project (European Plate Observing System), provided a larger framework for the integration of all solid Earth science data into a single Pan-European e-infrastructure. Up to now, the two adjacent scientific disciplines, i.e. the earthquake engineering and seismology, have not interfaced their data structures, lacking an interoperable data-sharing structure. However, there is need to increase the interaction of the earthquake engineering and seismology communities by integrating the most important databanks and related informatics services in Europe, i.e. SERIES and EPOS. This deliverable presents a review of the current SERIES and EPOS systems: the main features of the two are discussed, focusing on their architecture, content, databases, functionality and access portals. It is noted that aiming to a better knowledge of the EPOS and SERIES projects, the deliverable needed to review also two approaches for data sharing and integration (governance, architecture, collaboration), and not be only limited to a review of current SERIES and EPOS databases. The review presented in the deliverable will serve as the basis for the future roadmap for integration of earthquake engineering and seismological data and informatics services that will support the needs of the two research communities and beyond.
