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.

Lessons learned about instigating change towards an AKIS/RD in Brandenburg, Germany


Manifold radical structural changes have formed the present Agricultural Knowledge System AKS in the post-socialist German Federal State of Brandenburg. Organisational and institutional structures have been in transition, compelled to search for new functions and roles in the free market system. Parallel to this re-structuring process, EU CAP-reform set a readjusted pattern for farming in Europe. The second pillar of agricultural policy funding structures, as well as the instruments of environmental policy on Landscape development and natural resource management, offer new challenges in the transformation towards future Agricultural Knowledge and Information Systems for Rural Development - AKIS/RDs. Experiences in applied research activities on integrating environmental aspects into agricultural extension, from the authors current doctoral thesis, are blended with theoretical considerations on instigating change in post-socialist states. With regard to the Brandenburg privatised extension system and aiming at developing a participatory AKIS/RD model for Brandenburg, important lessons learned about how to get key-stakeholders to alternate and negotiate between top-down and bottom-up approaches are pinpointed.
