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.

Knowledge Creation and Flow in Agriculture: The Experience and Role of the Japanese Extension Advisors
This paper presents findings of a recent study on the experience and roles of agricultural extension advisors in the context of knowledge creation and flow in organizations. Data were collected through interviews with eleven principal and senior extension advisors and a consultant from different Prefectures and organizations as well as questionnaires from 135 extension advisors in the Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan. The purpose of the study was to explore the preferences and roles played by extension advisors in relation to knowledge sharing among advisors, farmers and other stakeholders. Results show that the Japanese agricultural agencies are actively involved in facilitating knowledge creation within their organizations. The extension advisors, as intermediaries and catalysts, are the key links between farmers and the relevant agencies in terms of providing personalized and need-based information for decision-making.
