Abstract: The EROS (Expérience de Recherche d'Objets Sombres) experiment is a French collaboration between astronomers and particle physicists to search for the baryonic dark matter of the Galactic Halo by gravitational microlensing. A brief description of the experiment and the relational database managing the tens of thousands of CCD images is given. The pertinence of these data for stellar variability studies is highlighted together with some prospects for the future.
