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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Thirty years of progress in harmonizing and compiling food data as a result of the establishment of INFOODS


The International Network of Foods Data Systems (INFOODS) has provided leadership on the development and use of food composition data for over 30 years. The mission of INFOODS is the promotion of international participation, cooperation and harmonization in the generation, compilation and dissemination of adequate and reliable data on the composition of foods, beverages, and their ingredients in forms appropriate to meet the needs of various users. Achievements include the development of guidelines and standards, increased capacity development in generating and compiling food composition data, a food composition database management system, improvements in laboratory quality assurance, and development of several food composition databases and tables. Recently, INFOODS has led efforts to define and document food biodiversity. As new foods and food components come into prominence, and as analytical methods evolve, the activities of INFOODS will continue to advance the quality and quantity of food composition data globally into the future.
