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

27th and 28th November 2017 – Wageningen UR, Netherlands

We are pleased to announce e-ROSA’s second Stakeholder Workshop!

After the successful first e-ROSA workshop in which we identified available infrastructures and e-infrastructure capabilities for open science in agri-food, we are organising the second e-ROSA workshop looking at the societal & scientific challenges in agricultural & food systems, that could be facilitated through the development of a global e-infrastructure in line with the European Open Science Cloud’s agenda.

With the increasing digitization of agriculture and food systems, many new opportunities arise for research and innovation to further enable discovery of new applications, brokering pre-competitive partnerships for collaboration, and agenda setting for promising developments.As activities go increasingly "online" and produce vast amounts of data,e-Infrastructuresare key in thefuture development of Research Infrastructures that aremajor instruments for the advancement of science, technology and knowledge.E-Infrastructuresare 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.

The workshop will seek to achieve three objectives in envisioning a future e-infrastructure for open science in agri-food:

Identify research challenges that benefit from an open science e-infrastructure in agri-food

Identify common challenges in ICT & data that could be tackled with an e-infrastructure approach

Engage a broad community of scientists with a diverse background to ensemble transformative use cases
