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.

EVERYDAY THRESHOLD CONCEPTS: IMPLICATIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE EDUCATION IN VIETNAM'S MEKONG DELTA
Within shifting development paradigms, in the Mekong Delta, the largest and most productive agriculture region in Vietnam, integrated pest management has for decades been introduced to help farmers more effectively manage their farms and natural resources, and recently a participatory approach has been promoted in agricultural extension work. Using those two cases that illustrate liminal states local knowledge users inhabit, this paper investigates knowledge acquisition and adoption for sustainable agriculture under the threshold concept research. Based on qualitative data analysis from a one-year field-research in the Mekong Delta centered around the results of a two-round Delphi survey with the participation of local researchers to identify threshold concepts, our findings highlight that localised threshold concepts developed from everyday practice, which we coin everyday threshold concepts, should be emphasised to address the stuckness in learning and practising participatory and sustainable development and that threshold concept discovery needs to be a joint journey of global-local, trainer-trainee and science-everyday knowledges. The paper thus contributes to the growing research body of threshold concepts by integrating the ontological dimension - the level of social interaction in knowledge creation - into the current framework that primarily concentrates on epistemological discussions - a direction that invites further research.
