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.

Learning about innovation through networks: the development of environment-friendly viticulture


Over the past decade, organisations producing quality goods have been investigating innovative processes to cope with the new quality criteria demanded by consumers, commodity chains and policy-makers. In this paper, we propose to use network sociology to link innovation and learning theories and thus highlight the diverse social practices contributing to changes and underlying learning processes in such contexts. Farmers groups, evolving towards multifunctional agriculture, constitute exemplary cases to study these dynamics. We will be presenting the results of a longitudinal ethnographic case study carried out in a small cooperative implementing environment-friendly viticulture in the Languedoc (South of France). Beyond the diverse strategic positions developed in response to the innovative project, two kinds of networks are highlighted: the first type refers to daily dialogue and service exchange, the second one assumes the contours of knowledge-based strategies required by the management of diverse areas of change. All of these underline the importance of thematic experts that go further than 'traditional' leadership. We will conclude by suggesting the management of 'practices networks' both integrating these different networks and linking diverse strategic positions to respond to the challenges of the economy of quality.
