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.

Highlights of the Evolution of Priority Assessment and Targeting at the International Center for Maize and Wheat Improvement (CIMMYT)


The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center's (CIMMYT) experience with priority assessment and targeting has co-evolved with the advances across the international agricultural research system. A wide range of CIMMYT ex post assessments provide a valuable knowledge base of returns to past research which reduces the risks of poor research choices; but their value is increased by ex ante impact assessments. One milestone for the allocation of resources was the development of a Resource Allocation Tool ('RAT'), used at CIMMYT during its strategic planning in 2003/04. The RAT served as a starting point to address complex resource allocation questions in quantitative ways with hard data. These experiences with priority assessment and targeting approaches, methods, criteria and data were reviewed in a workshop at the CIMMYT headquarters in Mexico in August 2005. For the purposes of identifying optimal allocations of resources to maize and wheat research, by region, by discipline (e. g. genetic resources, breeding or agronomy) and by challenge/constraint (such as drought, biotic stress or value-added), a systematic step-wise process was outlined. This included the choice of criteria and methods depending on the specific demands, scope, level of aggregation and availability of resources.
