  16. 16. Francine Berman Initial Agriculture Data Interest Group • The Agricultural Data Interest Group is a domain oriented interest group to work on all issues related to data important for the development of global agriculture. The interest group aims to represent all stakeholders producing, managing, aggregating, sharing and consuming data for agricultural research and innovation. Efforts will be made to get an active representation of the major international institutions, which work on agricultural research and innovation. It will take stock of existing problems and experiences and will pave the way for a number of domain specific working groups to make precise proposals for solution in specific area. This interest group will help to promote good practices in our research domain : data sharing policies, data management plan, data interoperability. • The Agricultural Data Interest Group has a specific interest in data interoperability. This refers not only to exchange of data of the same type, but also to data of a different types, which refers to the same object. In this context the interest group is planning a first working group on "wheat data interoperability" in close collaboration with the "Global Wheat Initiative".
