e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Knowledge Based Development Model


This paper submits the final results of the doctoral research work about the development of a knowledge based model for a city-region. The model consists of three stages: contextual, intervention and assessment, and technological. Its construction was made from an analysis of knowledge, going through local and regional development models, considering methodologies and models of digital and knowledge cities and regions around the world, and taking into consideration the digital society and the management of knowledge in this society. The work was developed using a participatory action research method that was carried out during the past five years with social agents from cities and sub-regions of the Coffee Triangle Region in Colombia. The contextual stage consists of three structures: one to relate the capital system of a city-region, another with the indicators of the information and knowledge society associated to the capital system, and the last one is a structure to make a multi-contextual observation to the practices, models, initiatives and methodologies of digital and knowledge cities and regions around the world. The intervention and assessment stage proposes the structure of an agenda of action that fosters social agents as knowledge agents, thus adding intensive knowledge processes to the organizations, the communities, and the individual performance. It includes a structure of institutionalism and governability development based on knowledge, and a structure for the management of the city-region social-technological-cultural system as a complex adaptive system. The technological stage proposes a technological infrastructure organization for the city-region centered in the technological intelligence of the territory, in infrastructure levels of digital technologies and in a regional knowledge management system as well as a digital inclusion structure for the social appropriation of digital technologies. The model proposed fits the Knowledge Management research line which belongs to the doctoral program on Information and Knowledge Society in the Computer Science Faculty at Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Madrid Campus. The validation and implementation of the model has been carried out through a participatory action research model in the Manizales, Caldas, Colombia city-region.
