On 3 July 2018 AGNFRA PLUS project published its first Book Chapter by the name “Big Data in Agricultural and Food Research: Challenges and Opportunities of an integrated Big Data e-Infrastructure”. The authors of the book chapter are Pythagoras Karampiperis, Rob Lokers, Pascal Neveu, Odile Hologne, George Kakaletris, Leonardo Candela, Matthias Filter, Nikos Manouselis Maritina Stavrakaki and Panagiotis Zervas, the publication venue is “Big Data for the Greater Good” and the publisher of the book is Springer.
The chapter focuses on the presentation of an innovative, holistic e-infrastructure solution that aims to enable researches for distinct but interconnected domains to share data, algorithms and results in a scalable and efficient fashion. It furthermore discusses on the potentially significant impact that such infrastructures can have on agriculture and food management and policy making, by applying the proposed solution in variegating agri-food related domains.

AGINFRA+ aims to exploit core e-infrastructures such as EGI.eu, OpenAIRE, EUDAT and D4Science, towards the evolution of the AGINFRA data infrastructure, so as to provide a sustainable channel addressing adjacent but not fully connected user communities around Agriculture and Food.
The selected AGINFRA+ Use Cases will illustrate the benefits of applying the Science as a Service approach to pressing research questions from the corresponding research communities.
