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.

Fruitful - Integrated supply-chain information system for fruit produce between South Africa and the Netherlands


South-African and Dutch research institutes and business partners collaborated in several pilot projects for improving logistical performance and quality performance to strengthen the market position of South-African fruit after deregulation of the domestic market. Based on participatory problem assessment, it was concluded that major bottlenecks for realizing fully integrated exchange of information were far less of a the technical nature (hardware and software), but had to do with the cost side and the human' nature, e.g., education, procedures, data accuracy, mistrust, competition, institutional capacities and organization. Pilots were conducted to improve inter-company planning, coordination and information exchange, and to enhance the role of the government in moving towards standardization.
