It aims to allow seamless access to distributed
astronomical resources, and to provide the necessary
tools to analyse data and produce scientifically
relevant results. In this context, access to and
full interoperability between spectroscopic data
of current ground-based or space-borne observatories
is already now a key element to fully exploit
the potentiality of the VO.
The EURO-VO project aims at deploying an operational
VO in Europe. Its objectives are technology take-up
and VO compliant resource provision, building
the technical infrastructure and supporting its
utilization by the scientific community.
