  • In order to address these barriers to opening access to data and information and to their effective transformation and use.  An integrated two-pronged approach of good policy and practice is needed so that organizations can develop incentives build up their skills base for greater cooperation and sharing.  In addition, capacity development has to be a cornerstone of the approach that will help in applying data and information to solving real problems.  A collective effort will really help many smaller institutions to make information truly accessible and contribute to its effective use as they can immediately adopt proven practices and tools without having to develop their own.BENEFITS:  By supporting a more coordinated approach to opening up data and information and enabling their effective use, research organizations can reduce costs and guide, train, and motivate their staff.
  • PRIORITIES AREAS IDENTIFIED:1. To improve investment through introduction of sound policies and coordinated approaches; 2. To develop institutional capacity through encouraging self-sufficiency and empowerment; 3. To make data and information accessible by promoting open content and common standards.

  • Partners have been working over the intervening two years to advance the global agenda on accessibility and effective use, with a variety of achievements to be reported through GCARD 2012. A series of consultations have identified the importance of creating a framework to address the issues outlined above, so a new “Framework for Data and Information Sharing” is being develop. This will cover all data and information types produced by diverse organizations. The CIARD framework spans three key dimensions:  Championing change in policy and practice: A toolkit is available to support organizations’ and individuals’ efforts to raise awareness/advocate for/influence other towards the need for change and value of ‘opening up agricultural knowledge for all’. This Toolkit is filled with information, ideas, tools and resources to provide support to activities to raise awareness, promote and push through activities to opening access to agricultural knowledge.Supporting evidence of current initiatives to open up access are also being collected, and good practices and benefits are also being documented from different countries in the form of case studies. (For instance: EMBRAPA in LAC). These will bring together evidence and experience from other contexts that can support organizations and individual advocacy approaches.  institutional and organizational issues; Guidelines are available for organization to use in capacity development, in the form of CIARD Pathways. These provide an introduction for organizations to the many ways in which agricultural research knowledge/information/data can be made more accessible to those who need them.In addition, CIARD offers a Virtual Fair as a facility where people and organizations can share and learn about the ways to make their information and knowledge more accessible, and find organizations which provide products and services that can facilitate that. Targeted e-learning programmes are available to support skills development.Data and information flows in agriculture-related areas will be enhanced and supported.  Technical issues and technologies. A set of open services -such as the CIARD.RING- and tools are available to promote information and data sharing, and open standards are continuously being developed and applied.

    1. 1. GRCP 1: Access to Scholarly Publications and Other Technical DocumentationUsing information to power innovationpresented by Andrea Sonnino, FAOG20 Meeting Agricultural Chief Scientists, Mexico, September 2012
    2. 2. Knowledge Sharing in Agricultural Innovation Innovation is knowledge-intensive and requires greater information sharing/exchange Access to research outputs is essential to address problems Effective access enhances information use, and enhances innovation within and among communities Greater use of information will accelerate rural development
    3. 3. Communicating Agricultural Research Low investment in research communication - Many agricultural research organizations invest only a small fraction on communicating their results and ensuring they are adapted to rural needs. - Most organizations make <10% of their publications/documents accessible on the Internet.Often ‘public’ information is like this We produce results, but what happens to them? It seems that much useful data and information never get published and the farmers don’t seem to benefit

    6. 6. WHAT IS NEEDED An integrated two-pronged approach of good policy and practice Capacity development – a cornerstone A collective effort - adopt proven practices and toolsA coordinated approach will reduce costs and guide, train and motivate staff in research organizations
    7. 7. PRIORITIES AREAS IDENTIFIEDTo improve investment through introductionof sound policies and coordinated approachesTo develop institutional capacity throughencouraging self-sufficiency andempowerment;To make data and information accessible bypromoting open content and commonstandards
    8. 8. G20 ActionThe G20 members and the international community are leadingthe way in policy support for opening access of scholarlypublications and documentation. Some examples are:• USA: “COMPETES” Act (Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science)• India: National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy-2012• European Commission: commitment to Open Access from the Horizon 2020 programme (2014-20)• UK: announcement that all publicly funded scientific research will be openly accessible by 2014, and Research Councils’ and Funding Councils’ new open access policies.• CGIAR Consortium: “Principles on the Management of Intellectual Assets”
    9. 9. THINK GLOBAL – ACT LOCAL A Global MovementCoherence in Informationfor Agricultural Research for Development
    10. 10. A GLOBAL MOVEMENT 15 Founding Partners and +150 other organizations participatingworking to ensure that information become more accessible to those who need them CIARD was endorsed at GCARD 2010
    11. 11. support for overcoming the Challenges in Research Communication Our institution has no policy on We don’t have time to communicating adapt our results into the its outputs what extensionists wantWe have no systems Other scientists willand tools for Internet publish our results if wedissemination share them There are no staff with the skills in digital technologies www.ciard.net
    12. 12. A framework for info./data sharingChampioning change in policy and practice CIARD Advocacy Toolkit Collection of evidence, benefits and good practices (i.e. CIARD Checklist)Institutions/organizations: Guidelines (CIARD Pathways) E-learning programmesInformation Technologies: Open information standards ,tools and services The MACS can build on these achievements
    13. 13. Routemap to Information Nodes and Gateways A Global Registry to share information related to agricultural research and innovation 345 open information services in agriculture164 information providers have registered their services- 123 document repositories with over 4 million accessions- 822,000 full text documents- 222 other services registered The CIARD Ring provides a platform for the nextgeneration of literature discovery/access services
    14. 14. THE WAY FORWARDNational organizations:- implement policies and practices on opening access to and enhancing use of agricultural research information- create/strengthen research communication activities- register their open services in the CIARD.RINGRegional and International organizations:- achieve even stronger consensus and support for CIARD- develop regional partnerships and networks to leverage resources and capacities in support of opening accessDonors providing research funds:- Support grantees in communicating their findings effectively
    15. 15. MACS GRCP 1 and CIARDThe CIARD movement and partnership canimmediately be leveraged to take forward GRCP 1G20 members have the policies, resources, skillsand tools to share their own information and helpothers to do soA collective effort with the G20 and theinternational and regional partners will achieveresults globally and locally
