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.

Many observers see advances in technology as the key means for ensuring continued economic growth, and with it human progress as well. In particular, three modern technologies-biotechnology, information technology (sometimes including robotics and cognitive technologies) and nanotechnology-are seen by some researchers as converging and thus bringing about unprecedented benefits for humanity in the coming decades. The aim of this paper is to answer the question: can the on-going rapid advances in these new technologies lead to a better future for all? By examining three important sectors- transport, health/medicine, and agriculture/food-we show that application of these technologies are either largely irrelevant, too expensive, or too risky to meet the future needs of all humans in these sectors.
