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.

An experimental evaluation of an integrated biomass gasification and power generation system for distributed power applications
This paper presents the feasibility study of a sound scientific, engineering, and technological solution for converting lignocellulosic biomass to electrical power using a trailer-scale downdraft biomass gasification system coupled with a spark-ignited IC engine/electric generator set for portable power applications on agricultural farms and in rural areas. The main objective of this study is to investigate the coupling and integration between the gasification unit and the power generation unit. Also it is intended to emphasize on the effectiveness of distributed power generation systems and demonstrate the feasibility of such integrated systems in real world scenarios, where the lignocellulosic biomass resources are widely available and distributed across the board. Four feedstock materials, pine, red oak, horse manure and cardboard that represent a wide spectrum of lignocellulosic biomass resources were chosen for the study. The efficiencies for individual components and the overall integrated system efficiencies were evaluated using experimental data and a thermal-chemical model for all four feedstocks.
