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.

A solution in tracking and traceability of Tianjin's pork production chain from farm to table


This paper presents considerations about the subject of traceability in the pork supply chain in China. It not only brings information technology issues, but also covers legal and marketing aspects, since the development of a traceability software system is supposed to fulfill food safety demands, national legislation and customer wishes. A complete low-cost solution of both tracking from farm to consumption and tracing the other way round is under study. Special and common bar code coding techniques were mainly adopted and a kind of carcass label made of polypropylene paper was designed. The data-record-keepings for an intensivism hoggery and for a live pig slaughter were developed based on intranet respectively, and they were finally integrated in a public traceability network information platform to supply access services for consumer and competent authority through internet. At the aspect of labeling data gathering just in time, an embedded PDA system was developed to deal with them and upload these data to local or remote servers through GPRS/CDMA. These results show that traceability practices for pork is feasible in the context of information technology. Furthermore, with the decrease of the cost of the RFID system and increase of the stabilization of its running situation, RFID has a vast foreground application in food safety traceability because of its real automation identification and more storage capacity.
