johannes keizerhttp://aims.fao.orgagINFRA valuesWe truly believe that scientific dataA | Open | Must be open and interlinkedNOT subject to barriers, based on standard formats and avoiding buildingdata silos due to lack of interrelatedness and ad-hoc APIs.B | Meaningful | Must be meaningful through explicit semanticsC | Reliable | Must be reliable, traceable and accessibleD | Actionable | Must be actionable trough services that empower researchReusing the semantics already provided in mature terminologies andontologies that are exposed and interlinked through the Web.Any kind of research objects can be stored in the data infrastructure, andthere are NO barriers to expressing relations between these objects tocapture the context of research activities.Data is not useful without flexible and adaptable services that allowresearchers to act on the data in the ways they need.
