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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Traceability is important in maintenance of food safety and quality at each stage of the food supply chain, particularly in identification of contamination sources and routes in meat, poultry and seafood. There are a variety of identification techniques for individual animals, batches of similar sources and for types of products. Each species has unique harvesting, processing, storage and distribution characteristics which influence identification methods and subsequent systems for tracking information to end users and tracing information back to source. Record keeping and data management are key components of a successful traceability system. Radio frequency identification (RFID) is often used for pallet, case and individual package identification and tracing, but bar coding and quick response technologies are being integrated into some production and marketing schemes for inventory control and the conveying of desired information to processors and consumers. Systems using multiple flexible reading and recording technologies and centralized internet data access allow the many different components in the meat, poultry and seafood industries to be linked together.
