Nikos Manouselis

Agro-Know Technologies

V1, 30/10/13

in this meeting
in this meeting
  • we will focus on selected Topics from two (2) Work Programmes
    • European Research Infrastructures (from Excellence Science)
    • Information & Communication Technologies (from LEIT)
  • they will serve as the pool from which we will chose Challenges to work with
  • this talk: to give you a very brief intro to the selected Topics [not to discuss, just to inform]

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: September 2nd, 2014
  • design study for an e-infrastructure on food science(s)?
    • leading to a more permanent ESFRI structure (legal entity etc)
  • several ESFRI e-infrastructures on plant science, forestry, etc
    • not sure if a food science proposal has been tried in the past
    • would be very relevant as a topic to other INFRA challenges as well (could mean that someone is already working on it)
  • could be an interesting next step for the sustainability of agINFRA
    • if not subsumed by LifeWatch
    • if not continued as a Community data service proposal (not in this WP version though!)

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: September 2nd, 2014
  • topic (a) seems like potentially relevant
  • I assume that only one project will be selected: big players will come out to play (EUDAT etc.)
  • interesting, if we can convince that agriculture can be one of the targeted communities
  • build on legacy of agINFRA

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: April 15th, 2014
  • only one project will be selected: big players will come out to play (OpenAIRE etc.)
  • interesting, if we can convince that agriculture is one of the core themes (where principal thematic repositories participate)
  • build on legacy of agINFRA, VOA3R and AGRIS that created a thematic network of repositories

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: September 2nd, 2014
  • interesting to link agINFRA with relevant infrastructures in USA, Canada, Russia, Australia, New Zealand
    • are there such infrastructures in these regions?
    • do we know contact people there?
    • who should lead such a CSA?

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: January 1st, 2015
  • very relevant to
    • Research Data Management interests
    • Capacity Building activities of all key stakeholders & relevant training programmes
  • possibly only one small project of 2M to be funded
  • needs good representation of key partners
    • plus a number of thematic pilots (such as agriculture)
  • partnerships, communities and core curricula may be developed earlier than 2015
    • e.g. in agINFRA & SemaGrow we will develop pilot curricula and training
    • e.g. UAH could pilot an online course

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: April 23rd, 2014
  • Explore if thematic projects (or themes into projects) can be proposed
  • Aim at a CSA that will help the creation and networking of start ups on agricultural data-powered apps/tech
    • link them to all the stakeholders of the agriculture/food value chain
    • help them understand challenges of the industries
    • connect them to potential customers

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: April 23rd, 2014
  • Collaborative projects in (a)
    • propose a pan-European open agriculture data incubator
      • based on pilot activities of agINFRA & Agro-Know
  • CSA for (b)
    • serve as a concrete agricultural and/or educational case study for the Big Data Aggregator Integrator

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: January 20th, 2015
  • interesting industry-focused campaigns & challenges
    • to run pilot ones within agINFRA to serve as demonstrators
  • to link to real, current societal challenges that can be backed up with open data
  • see examples such as the Big Data Hackathon of London
    • take advantage of Agro-Know & Data Science London collaboration

reflection & thoughts

  • Deadline: April 23rd, 2014
  • Focus particularly in pan-European & multilingual online services
    • textual data aggregators like GLN, AGRIS, …
    • online services like Organic.Edunet, openAGRIS, Org.ePrints, …
  • Build on lessons learnt from Organic.Lingua PSP pilot
    • Especially recommendations during & after reviews
    • Use good language technology partners like CELI

reflection & thoughts

  • OurFood proposal?
    • based on agINFRA practices & guidelines
    • using simpler & more modern infrastructure and technology
  • Will be in 2015
    • but is the main call/topic under which our agricultural data interoperability efforts may be aligned
  • paving the way towards an agricultural research e-infrastructure (ERIC)?
