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.

In a world marked by globalization, governments increasingly recognize entrepreneurship as a driving force for economic development and change. On the other hand, entrepreneurship is a fundamental component of the knowledge economy because the potential value of new ideas from research and knowledge can be best exploited by SMEs, rather than economic structures of production of table processes and markets relatively unknown. Travel and tourism activity are no exception, they have become today, a task as important as that done in industry, agriculture and trade. Tourist phenomena are becoming more complex and difficult to address the scientifically because, like any human activity, they fall under the influence of interdisciplinary study, involving economists, geographers, psychologists and sociologists. The issue aims at evaluating various types of entrepreneurship in rural communities adjacent to protected areas and produce an analysis of the extent to which business entrepreneurship for rural tourism and ecotourism is a prerequisite for sustainability equally protected areas and rural areas related them. Of course, not every area can generate thriving rural tourism business, but only those areas where tourism resources can become tourist influence entrepreneurship and support local authorities. Protected areas have recognized their tourist potential. By this potential, the human community may or may not benefit, given the purpose for which it decided to manage it. Transforming potential of the resource potential that is capitalized depends to a greater or lesser capacity to absorb community resource for recovery. Therefore, the dynamicity of these resources, linked directly by the ability of communities to realize the value of existing potential and willingness to integrate this potential in the economic sense. Basically it's existence entrepreneurship. Hence the structure and function occur tourism resource to be included in a specific territorial linked to a sense of recovery, respectively, becoming the dominant tourist: rural, mountainous, white, cross, etc.. Even if the Romanian rural businesses do not have appropriate access to information, knowledge-based businesses and growing across the world, have a low environmental impact and are a major opportunity to create rural jobs. They include: financial services, tourism, manufacturing, construction, trade, transport and communications. The working hypothesis of the study is the idea - the research outlined earlier - that entrepreneurship, in whatever space can be changed by knowledge that constantly made and addressed by all actors responsible for local economic development, determines the occurrence of a leap mentality premises collective evolution toward a higher open performance and welfare.
