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.

A Conceptual Information of Technology Framework to Support Rice Farming in Timor Leste


Agriculture is one of the main means of livelihood for the people of Timor Leste. Data shows that the Timor Leste annual rice consumption is 140 tonnes, while farmers only produce 60 tomes per year [1]. One factor is that, the farmers still use traditional ways to tackle pests and diseases and when the weather forecast is not accurate. The condition of infrastructure, geographic, and communication services is a major obstacle for ministry of agriculture to have a monitoring, provide solutions, and control over agricultural issues in Timor Leste [2]. Therefore, it needs information technology to establish communication between farmers and the Ministry of Agriculture. This paper presents the multi language framework concept namely Tetun, Indonesian, Portuguese, and English, because most of the people in Timor Leste still use the four languages for everyday communication. The aim of the framework concept is to describe a process of real time communication services with the farmers. The system acts as an expert to answer questions or to solve problems of farmers regarding pest and disease problems at any time, and hopefully it will increase agricultural productivity.
