On 11th April 2019, Enol Fernández from EGI Foundation presented the AGINFRA+ poster by the name "The AGINFRA+ Services for the Agri-food community" at the second EOSC-hub Week 2019.

This poster presents the three identified action lines to sustain AGINFRA+ project results, namely:

  • Consultancy service to deploy and configure custom VREs for agri-food research communities: corresponds to Virtual Research Environments (VREs) that can be developed and deployed as a service to various agri-food communities based on (a) the D4Science infrastructure and (b) the customization of generic or domain specific services offered by various partners, which have been tested and validated with agri-food researchers during the project lifetime.

  • Data Journals: corresponds to the two data journals that we have been set-up based on the ARPHA publishing platform (http://arphahub.com/), namely the Food Modelling Journal (https://fmj.pensoft.net/) and the Viticulture Data Journal (https://vdj.pensoft.net/).  

  • Thematic VREs: corresponds to the four VREs that have been set-up during the project lifetime for supporting the three user communities of the project, namely (a) one VRE for Agro-Climatic and Economic Modelling community, (b) two VREs for the Food Safety Risk Assessment Community and (c) one VRE for Food Security Community.

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

OUR COMMUNITIES

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.

AGROCLIMATIC AND ECONOMIC MODELLING

This community focuses on use cases aim to support the workflow of researchers, intermediaries and business analysts working on crop modelling, crop phenology estimation and yield forecasting, as well as related activities in the area of policy and decision support in food security, farm management advice and related activities.

FOOD SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT

This community focuses on use cases to support scientists in the multidisciplinary field of risk assessment and emerging risk identification as there is currently a strong need to create new technology-supported solutions that facilitate the knowledge integration processes relevant for these tasks.

FOOD SECURITY

This community focuses on use cases related to the high-throughput phenotyping large amount of data which need to be analyzed immediately for decision making. This aims to support phenomics researchers to select plant species and varieties which are the most adapted to specific environments and to global changes.
