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.

A generative design algorithm for the architectural design


The intensive quarters of the new residential areas lacking in facilities and urban form on the one hand, and the urban sprawl of suburban houses and buildings on the other, do not appear to be the best solution for a balanced and (eco) sustainable development and regeneration of land. In recently expanded areas, particularly in urban environments of small administrative dimensions, new types of housing have emerged spontaneously, reflecting people's wishes, but in a disorganised way. In most cases, these wishes are inspired by television programmes and the culture of social transformation from country living to urban working patterns. Generally speaking, there is a consensus that development needs to limit the use of agricultural land, which is already severely affected by pollution and urban sprawl; moreover, instead of building on brownfield and disused sites, development now encroaches on greenfield sites, triggering a dangerous cycle of disorganised growth. Therefore, we should develop a concept of building development that brings together new ways and desires of living that belong to our time, but which go hand-in-hand with appropriate and sustainable models. Thus, the preliminary assumption, but one which is crucial, reflects the desire of populations in peripheral urban areas (not only in such areas) to enjoy the advantages of a detached property in addition to those of a city of average density. The first line of research is to ascertain how - and if - it is possible to envisage a multiplication of levels. Such multiplication would permit regeneration in a contemporary perspective of the idea that develops from Le Corbusier's immeubles-villas to present-day eco-cities: is it possible to construct a building with a garden and vegetable patch on the fourth (or even thirtieth) floor?
