e-ROSA - Second workshop

e-ROSA’s second Stakeholder Workshop!

Challenges & Solutions towards an e-Infrastructure for Open Science in Agriculture

27th & 28th November – Hof van Wageningen, Wageningen, Netherlands

With the increasing digitization of agriculture and food systems, many new opportunities arise for research and innovation. For example, sensors in fields and drones help to measure and capture the state of the agri-environment throughout the season at low costs. Consumers are getting increasingly used to digital and mobile payments for food stuffs, thereby leaving a unique and digital trail of their nutrition behaviour. Another example is the agrofood industry and governments looking at big data and advanced data sharing agreements across value chain partners for quality control and food safety assessments. Research and innovation play a role in these societal developments by enabling discovery of new applications, brokering pre-competitive partnerships for collaboration, and agenda setting for promising developments.

Research Infrastructures (RIs) are major instruments for the advancement of science, technology and knowledge. E-Infrastructures refer to a combination of digital technologies (hardware and software), resources (data, services, digital libraries), communications (protocols, access rights and networks), people and organizational structures needed to manage them aimed at providing the scientific communities with high performance computing facilities, data management, treatment (virtual research environment), collaboration and service sharing essential for the development of a cutting edge science especially in the current context of “Big data”. They are key in future development of research infrastructures, as activities go increasingly "online" and produce vast amounts of data. Unsurprisingly, e-infrastructures are at the heart of the Digital Agenda of the European Commission in support to Open Science as they offer unprecedented scale and potential for collaboration between researchers, education communities, citizens and business companies beyond national, administrative and scientific discipline boundaries. This enhanced collaboration and increased accessibility of research data is expected to speed innovation, develop skills and truth in science.

This workshop is organised in the context of the European project e-ROSA (Towards an e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture). The latter seeks to build a shared vision of future sustainable e-infrastructures for Open Science in agriculture & food thanks to the co-development of a common roadmap by and for involved research communities and key stakeholders related to scientific data and research infrastructures. The workshop is the second of a series of three stakeholder workshops under e-ROSA, the first one focusing on where we stand today, the second one on what is our vision for the future, and the third one on how we can achieve it.

The workshop venue has a limited capacity of 70 people.
