e-ROSA Use Cases for Open Science in Agri-food – What are your needs?
Following e-ROSA’s second Stakeholder Workshop, e-ROSA is launching an open call to collect case studies on specific societal challenges, related research needs, as well as data & ICT challenges that should be addressed to support those needs, in order to achieve Open Science in the agri-food domain.
These case studies are key as they will support the identification of the services that the future e-infrastructure for agri-food science should provide.
If you are interested in providing such a case study, you can answer the guiding questions of the form that is available here and/or you can contact us so we can give you more detailed information on how to contribute.
We look forward to your contributions!!
