|Abstract:||In common with many scientific disciplines, earthquake engineering research is increasingly focusing on large international collaborations to address complex problems. Data integration is a key requirement to facilitate joint research efforts and to improve experimental outcomes. We present the development and implementation of a novel virtual database linking twenty two leading European earthquake engineering research institutions, making data integration possible at a European level without the need for a large, centralised repository. We describe the importance of establishing appropriate work methodologies to succeed in a distributed and highly heterogeneous work environment involving many dispersed institutions. We conclude by considering the future of earthquake engineering data integration, highlighting Semantic Web technologies as the main technological foundation to lead this integration.|
