The eROSA Project consortium - INRA, WUR and Agroknow - have released the "Roadmap for a pan-European e-Infrastructure for Open Science in Agricultural and Food Sciences".
The roadmap is the result of eROSA project's work over the last 17 months following a participatory process which involved relevant agri-food communities through the organisation of three main stakeholders' workshops organized in June 2017 in Montpellier, France; November 2017 in Wageningen, the Netherlands; and May 2018 in Athens, Greece.
The eROSA roadmap document sets the visions for 2030 and discusses the main scientific challenges of the agri-food sector, which could be addressed from a pan-European e-Infrastructure for Open Science. This e-infrastructure is proposed to be built on top of a set of assets that already exist within the agri-food landscape. It aligns them with prominent Open Science initiatives such as the European Open Science Cloud of the European Commission. Finally, the roadmap provides a set of pragmatic recommendations for achieving the vision for a pan-European e-Infrastructure for Open Science in agricultural and food sciences.
The roadmap is available for download.
Feedback can be provided until June 25, 2018 to the Roadmap document via the online form.
