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.

Integrating ICT applications for farm business collaboration processes using FIspace


Agri-Food Supply Chain Networks are required to increase production and to be transparent while reducing environmental impact. This challenges farm enterprises to innovate their production processes. These processes need to be supported by advanced ICT components that are developed by multiple vendors and owned by different enterprises. These ICT components should use future internet technologies to enable integration. To make these future internet technologies easily available, the European Commission started a Future Internet Public-Private Partnership Programme (FI-PPP). As part of this FI-PPP the FIspace project started with the development of a cloud-based platform to support business to business collaboration, enabling the formation of domain specific Software Ecosystems. These FIspace Software Ecosystems should drive the development of integrated and extensible collaboration services together with an initial set of domain applications that can support business processes and enables collaboration in networks. The FIspace Platform will enable integration of legacy systems, extending their functionality. This paper presents two use case scenarios for the smart application of pesticides to protect crops and keep them safe for diseases. These scenarios provide architectural descriptions how FIspace Platform configurations can support these processes. Based on these specific use case scenarios, generic use case scenarios and architectural descriptions are derived. These results can be used to develop FIspace Platform configurations supporting collaboration processes in other domains.
