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.

Developing evidence-based food standards - successes Introduction and challenges


The primary production and processing standard for dairy products links the well-established regulatory requirements in the manufacturing and retailing sector to form nationally consistent requirements across the whole dairy supply chain. The standard incorporates the principles of minimum effective regulation and an outcome focus, which provides flexibility for industry while protecting the health and safety of the community. The requirements within the standard are underpinned by a sound assessment of the risks posed by microbiological and chemical hazards, using internationally accepted principles and processes. The risk assessment process utilised a methodology for assessing risks across a range of hazards in multiple products and across different stages of the supply chain. While development and analyses of the evidence base for the risk assessment resulted in the collation and analyses of an extensive amount of information, it also highlighted gaps in the knowledge base. These knowledge gaps include the presence/absence of pathogens in raw milk in Australia, the attribution of outbreaks of foodborne disease to specific food vehicles and aspects of heat resistance of pathogens of importance to dairy products. Finally, the analyses underpinning the standard lay the groundwork for considering the introduction of the emerging food safety metrics in the future.
