The goals of the EU/FP7 project EURISGIC (European Risk from Geomagnetically Induced Currents) include the production of the first ever risk map of GIC throughout Europe as well as the first European-wide real-time prototype forecast service of GIC in power systems. The research has been designed to help meet these challenges and will rely on a well organised, easy to access database containing high quality, well defined data from various sources. Four main categories of measurements have been identified as essential components of the database. These are in-situ solar wind observations, ground-based geomagnetic field, electric field data and GIC measurements. This poster describes the plans for the EURISGIC database and its current status. The four main data sets are discussed with regard to their importance for the research packages and final products. A final data archive is planned to extend beyond the current project to establish a legacy for future GIC research.
