The aim of the database structure support group is to find and maintain a table structure and database management system that is adequate and up to date for the widest possible use of the EPD. The group is maintaining and fostering links to other palaeo-environmental databases like the ALPine Pollen DAtaBAse (ALPADABA) housed in Bern (Switzerland), [[Neotoma]], ​the [[http://​medias.obs-mip.fr/​apd/​ |African Pollen Database (APD)]], [[PANGAEA]], and [[http://​www.bugscep.com/​|BugsCEP]].
