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.

A comparison of students' insights and attitudes towards agricultural engineering education: Evidence from New Zealand and the Sultanate of Oman


Like other academic disciplines, agricultural engineering (AE) is faced with the challenges of recruiting and retaining sufficient undergraduate majors to ensure its survival. Combinations of historical problems that are related to the poor image of agriculture (and AE) have been exacerbated by the emergence of new knowledge frontiers and economic drivers anchored around information technology and biology. Consequently, there is a lively global dialogue oil the future of AE education, including name change. The author has witnessed the repositioning the AE departments at Massey University in New Zealand and Sultan Qaboos University in Oman. At both institutions, a combination of written questionnaires and focused group stud, v was used to assess students' perceptions and attitudes towards AE education, curriculum content and their career prospects. In this article, I compare and discuss the results and feedback obtained front students from both institutions. Based on these findings, suggestions are made to ensure greater stakeholder participation and contribution in the ongoing global dialogue oil the transformation and future of AE education and profession. The comparative synthesis reported in this article underlines the vital importance of careful consideration of the local (institutional and national) conditions under which agricultural engineering education and profession are situated before embarking oil program reform and transformation and student recruitment and retention.
