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.

Success stories: Analysis and evaluation of the Italian case-study of DEMETER in the Destra Sele Plain.
The project DEMETER (DEMonstration of Earth observation Technologies in Routine irrigation advisory services; http://www.demeter-ec.net) has been financed by the U.E. within the V Framework Program and it is dedicated to the development of techniques for using space remote sensing data (Earth Observation, EO data) for improving water management in agriculture. The specific object of the project is the setting-up of a pre-operative prototype which integrates satellite data and information-technology to improve the performance of irrigation advisory services (IAS) at both district and farm levels. The system has been implemented in three pilot zones (in Spain, Portugal and Italy). This paper provides the experience for the Italian pilot zone and shows the results of the operative demonstration campaign during the 2005 irrigation season. The practicality of receiving and processing space remote sensing data in near-real-time, the irrigation performance improvements due the system adopted and feedbacks from farmers are reported.
