The Virtual Atomic and Molecular Data Centre (VAMDC; http://www.vamdc.eu) is a European-Union-funded collaboration between several groups involved in the generation, evaluation, and use of atomic and molecular data. VAMDC aims at building a secure, documented, flexible and interoperable e-Science environment-based interface to existing atomic and molecular databases. The global infrastructure of this project uses technologies derived from the International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA). The infrastructure, as well as the first database prototypes will be described.

Keywords: astronomical databases; virtual observatory tools; physical data and processes; atomic data; molecular data
