The Virtual Observatory is an international astronomical community-based initiative. It aims to allow global electronic access to the available astronomical data archives of space and ground-based observatories and other sky survey databases. EURO-VO aims at deploying an operational VO in Europe. It supports the utilization of VO tools and services by the scientific community, technology take-up and VO compliant resource provision, and building of the technical infrastructure.
