SSHADE is a sub-network of 20 European contributors from 8 different countries. It will extend the GhoSST (Grenoble astropHysics and planetOlogy Solid Spectroscopy Thermodynamics) infrastructure defined in FP7 programs Europlanet-RI and VAMDC to a large set of contributors in the field of solid spectroscopy, including the major ones. Implementation in the JRA will be followed by a phase of data documentation and validation in VESPA-VA, to ensure consistency and data quality. The resulting service will not only help improve the spectral databases of ices, minerals and organic material, but will also make the state-of-the-art laboratory data readily available as references to interpret observations of planets and small bodies, in particular from spacecraft. The 20 data providers themselves are not beneficiaries.
