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.

Feasibility analysis upon the implementation of GSM based date transfer systems in precision agriculture
Within the field of precision agriculture, one of the major research issues today is to develop management solutions specially designed to maximize the farmer's profit and expedite technological operations like data collection from infield monitoring sensors and data loggers. The data transfer between the monitored field/ site and the headquarters of the operating entity is usually challenging and time consuming for the ordinary farmers. Time spent by waiting for the collected field data to be received at the headquarters of the servicing company may cause multiple delays in the time schedule of the future field operations. Disturbances within the time schedule of the on-going field operations may cause delays for the payment of equipment and raw materials suppliers. Time management solutions currently in place within the production processes such as "just in time production", where timetables are crucial for the production cycles, rely on modern technologies and transportation solutions for the completion of the product, while maintaining low storage costs for the raw materials. Within this field, data management and data transportation solutions are a key component in the relevant production cycle. The paper presents a new architecture for a GSM based data transfer system and gives an overlook over its economic feasibility and potential implementation. One can also find within the paper a SWOT analysis of the possible replacement for the current data transfer solution with the GSM based data transfer system.
