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.

An analysis of Herero toponyms sheds new light on linguistic, cultural and other correspondences in the vocabularies of a variety of peoples inhabiting Southern Africa over many thousands of years. Evolutionary processes as primary toponymic formatives were determined by environmental and cultural conditions. Semantic and phonological comparison of Herero place-name elements with recorded Stone Age hunter-gatherer lexemes indicates cognates: linguistic modification manifested orthographically reflecting the results of language contact. Numerous Herero place-name elements correspond to Bushman words in sound and meaning, while click replacements and other sound shifts are also evident. Cultural diversity between hunter-gatherers and Iron Age pastoralists initially precluded terminological cognates relating to animal husbandry, agriculture, and the like.
