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.

Global development education as a tool for professional development at faculties of economics


The paper accents the need to develop new global skills for today's global labor market in the context of the demands of modern society. Today's and tomorrow's demands for a highly skilled workforce for the Global economy are new and demanding challenges for the teacher and training community. New skills and competencies are needed for the success of professionals in economy and business. Those skills should be a component part of their education. Development of global skills is emphasized in the context of the current approach of global development education (GDE) in educational practice. The concept of GDE is described according to national legislation in Slovakia. Schools are among the key actors in the implementation of the National Strategy for GDE. Implementation of GDE to the educational process in schools is important from the aspect of the new principles of education, which are included in The Manifesto of the Government of the Slovak Republic 2010-2014. Aims of GDE is to prepare young people for life in today's interconnected, rapidly changing world, to lead them to democracy, and especially helping them to adapt to new conditions. GDE supports the linkage of the education market to the labor market, which is one of the priorities of external and internal transformation of schools, educational institutions and education at all. This task is also highly important for universities, especially since the colleges and universities have to prepare highly qualified specialists for the operation of the new, knowledge-based society and greatly contribute to democratic development, scientific and technological progress, economic growth and social welfare, increasing employment, etc. In the study is described the theoretical background of the approach and the qualitative methodology that is used to describe the state and implementation of this approach at Slovak universities. Contribution describes the current state of implementation of the GDE in higher education in Slovakia and briefly describes an example of GDE implementation at the Faculty of Economics and Management of Slovak University of Agriculture. Project of implementation of GDE at economical faculties resulted in the creation of several textbooks, analytical studies and suggestions for teaching methods, which could be helpful in global education practice. Education in the GDE topics increases the qualifications of future experts in different social science disciplines, helping them to apply for the labor market, and also to be successful in the global economy, not only in various international institutions in developed countries and developing countries. In addition, knowledge of GDE themes develop students' abilities, skills, attitudes and values that enable them to understand the global challenges in a changing global economy. The scope of the changes taking place in the national and the world economy is in fact much broader as they affect social and cultural, technological, environmental and other conditions.
