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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Steeluniversity.org: A new e-learning resource on ferrous metallurgy


steeluniversity.org is being developed by the International Iron and Steel Institute. It is a comprehensive internet delivered package of e-learning resources on ferrous metallurgy, aimed at undergraduate students of materials science and engineering subjects and graduate employees in the steel industry supply chain. It provides highly interactive simulations of steelmaking processes, the selection of steels for a diversity of applications, the underlying scientific, metallurgical and engineering principles and environmental aspects of the production, use and recycling of steel. The primary motivation behind the development of steeluniversity.org is the desire of steelmakers around the world to excite, stimulate, attract and recruit students and also to reduce the cost of inservice training of their staff. Another goal is to sustain knowledge of ferrous metallurgy given the decline in metallurgy courses in universities and the retirement of professors and steel industry experts. It is also intended to provide practical examples from a modem industry of the application of difficult subjects such as thermodynamics. The heart of http://www.steeluniversity.org is a series of detailed process simulations in which the learner has the opportunity to run a virtual steelworks, making technical and operational decisions and getting feedback on the quality and costs of what has been produced, starting from iron ore or steel scrap, through refining, casting, rolling and finishing to a product and subsequent applications. On-line tensile and Charpy impact tests will also be available at steeluniversity.org. The resources are also expected to provide a valuable insight into metallurgy and materials science for school pupils and their teachers, as it will provide case studies for design and technology and engineering, as well as resources for physics and chemistry that are not normally available to schools Another feature of steeluniversity.org will be a directory of experts in industry and academia who are active in the teaching and researching of steel technologies.
