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 common problem associated with ready-made software is that businesses are forced to alter some of their processes in order to fully utilize the product. On the other hand, custom-made applications are specifically designed to accommodate the needs of the client's activities, so the final product will be based on their input during the software development process, and will be fine-tuned to fit the way your business operates. With this approach, an information system designed towards the management of agricultural properties, the Agrifootprint system, was developed. The main goal of the Agrifootprint system was to develop and implement a Web-based Geographic Information System, based on Open-Source technology, with a custom-made, comprehensive and user-friendly geospatial system, in order to integrate and manage data from several small agriculture enterprises. The development process was based in Agile methodologies: SCRUM and Evolutionary Prototyping. This option for agile development process brought the establishment of a relationship of complicity between the customer and the development team due to more real understanding of the requirements raised and the system that will be produced from these.
