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.

Evaluation of National Science and Technology Policies in Iran


Science and technology (S&T) is the engine and innovation and entrepreneurship is jet engine to sustainable development, and they are also the major solution to the socio-economic progresses, growths and crisis. Science, technology and innovation are connected rings in synergy chain of science and wealth. Looking back at the growth and development histories, most major revolution was closely linked with transformative breakthrough in S&T, which had a far-reaching impact on the rise and fall of a nation and the destiny of a country as well. The countries that were able to seize the opportunity and achieve the socio-economic take-off, had taken the lead in fulfilling development. Iran's national S&T (higher education, research and technology system) policies, including 6 main titles 34 subtitles, have approved on September 2014. These policies define and present the position of Iran's higher education, research and technology in dimensions of inputs, processes and outputs, and their interactions with other political, economical, social, cultural systems and world. Also, the policies show the position of Iran's S&T in the long term. In this study, based on the approved and formal policies, the existing situation and performance of the S&T has investigated by analytical method with using focus group technique. With referral to the evaluation can find the situation of S&T in Iran towards the future. By full fulfilling the S&T policies is expected that Iran reach to better level and position in S&T, innovation, entrepreneurship, knowledge-based and sustainable development. The country faces with serious challenges to access to global better position, knowledge-based economy, innovation and entrepreneurship. Of course, Iran has achieved good experiences and developments in S&T field, particularly high and new technologies. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
