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.

Food safety has emerged as an issue for the fresh fruit and vegetable industry with reports of several food poisoning outbreaks traced to E. coli. Although these outbreaks generate a great deal of attention, probably many more fresh food contamination instances go undetected. While the agricultural supply chain is complex, new technologies are available that hold the promise of better track and trace for fresh foods. This article examines the trends and applications of radio frequency identification (RFID) and related information technologies as a means of improving the safety for fresh foods in addition to being a platform for other innovations. Overall, data and information technologies will gain increasing importance in agriculture, affecting diverse areas such as food safety, supply chain, and marketing.
