As an outcome of a former project of the JOULE programme of the European Commission, the Database SOPHIE (Sources of Pollution for a Healthy and Comfortable Indoor Environment) represents an attempt to contribute to an objective, permanent and dynamic documentation of indoor air pollution sources. The interest expressed towards SOPHIE by different potential users is ongoing. Therefore it was decided to form a European organisation to handle the dissemination and exploitation of SOPHIE. Ways to make it accessible and useful to the scientific and professional community have been under preparation. This paper highlights the preparation activities that have to be to taken with respect to marketing and organisational matters of SOPHIE.
