NERIES stands for 'Network of Research Infrastructures for European Seismology' and is an Integrated Infrastructure Initiative (I3) project in the Sixth Framework Program (FP6) of the European Commission (EC). NERIES aims at networking the European seismic networks, improving access to data, allowing access to specific seismic infrastructures and pursuing targeted research developing the next generation of tools for improved service and data analysis.

The NERIES consortium consists of 25 participants (European universities and research centres) executing 18 different activities: 9 Networking Activities, 5 Joint Research Activities, and 5 activities concerning Transnational Access.

The core of the NERIES project organization lies with the Observatories and Research Facilities for European Seismology (ORFEUS) and the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC). Both organizations are working under the auspices of the European Seismological Commission (ESC). The NERIES Project Office is situated at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI).
