agINFRA: a research data hub for agriculture, food and the environment.

Drakos A, Protonotarios V, Manouselis N - F1000Res (2015)

Bottom Line: Working on enhancing the interoperability between heterogeneous data sources, the agINFRA project has left a set of grid- and cloud- based services that can be reused by future initiatives and adopted by existing ones, in order to facilitate the dissemination of agricultural research, educational and other types of data.On top of that, agINFRA provided a set of domain-specific recommendations for the publication of agri-food research outcomes.This paper discusses the concept of the agINFRA project and presents its major outcomes, as adopted by existing initiatives activated in the context of agricultural research and education.

ABSTRACT
The agINFRA project (www.aginfra.eu) was a European Commission funded project under the 7th Framework Programme that aimed to introduce agricultural scientific communities to the vision of open and participatory data-intensive science. agINFRA has now evolved into the European hub for data-powered research on agriculture, food and the environment, serving the research community through multiple roles. Working on enhancing the interoperability between heterogeneous data sources, the agINFRA project has left a set of grid- and cloud- based services that can be reused by future initiatives and adopted by existing ones, in order to facilitate the dissemination of agricultural research, educational and other types of data. On top of that, agINFRA provided a set of domain-specific recommendations for the publication of agri-food research outcomes. This paper discusses the concept of the agINFRA project and presents its major outcomes, as adopted by existing initiatives activated in the context of agricultural research and education.

Mentions: agINFRA provides data infrastructure and services for agricultural and related scientific communities, relevant data repositories in Europe, as well as virtual collaboration with researchers and repositories from other countries around the globe. This effort was realized with a European approach, involving partners from EU member states and European and international initiatives. agINFRA had identified a strategy to deliver socio-economic impacts across Europe. Towards this end, two different aspects of agINFRA work implemented this strategy: the open availability of services to create new products and the organisation of hackathons events to train users and create new opportunities2. Firstly all services created and data managed by agINFRA are openly shared with the community so anyone can use them. Today business models around open data and open services and are more and more common. In agINFRA one of the partners, Agro-Know, took advantage of the provided technology to create and launch a new product, the Agro-Know Stem (http://www.akstem.com), a solution that help users open, track, monitor and disseminate their research data. The Agro-Know Stem makes use of many of the agINFRA technologies (e.g. CIARD-RING, micro-finders, Grid powered aggregation workflows, etc.) and experience (e.g. metadata formats, vocabularies) to provide a high end product to their clients (Figure 3).
