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.

Improving natural resource management by "thinking industry and acting regionally": Introduction and successes of dairy Australia's multi-scaled natural resource management strategy
Following the Australian Government's National Land & Water Resources Audit (commenced in 1997; NLWRA, 2005), and with support from the National Landcare Program (NLP, 2005), the Australian dairy industry developed its strategy to improve Natural Resource Management (NRM) called Dairying for Tomorrow (DfT, 2005). This strategy is inclusive of industry, government and NRM bodies, and functions simultaneously across local, regional, state and national domains of NRM. To deliver this strategy, DfT identified the need to embrace regional diversity between different - but interdependent - social, industry and natural systems, whilst maintaining a common focus on improving NRM. Two process tools for achieving on-farm change were designed with support and ownership from Australia's eight Regional Dairy Programs (RDP), including local piloting. Flexibility to regionalise both tools to reflect the local context within which they are applied in theory and practice has proved critical for effectively addressing NRM issues and maintaining viable on-farm (and hence industry) financial performance.
