  1. 1. “Information Infrastructure for agriculture: lessons learned in the agINFRA project”
  2. 2. Infrastructure is a term heavily used when talking about information systems in science. The understanding what infrastructure means is not always commonly shared and most probably there is no one single meaning. The experience of the agINFRA project is that developing an infrastructure for information management may deemphasize the programming of complex software applications and the intervention on the “aggregation level”. It shows that there is an enormous need to concentrate on the level where data are produced and managed. It also showed that investment in common semantics is a necessary part of infrastructure and the effort for this is often undervalued. A third pillar of infrastructure (after tools, and standards) capacity development is often completely neglected and can lead to failure of the entire undertaking. Only the combination of technology, standards and capacity development will assure that efficient and successful infrastructure can be created
  3. 3. johannes keizerhttp://aims.fao.org agINFRA evaluation 3 d. Assessment Excellent progress (the project has fully achieved its objectives and technical goals for the period and has even exceeded expectations). ……we wish to underline the outstanding sustainability plan proposed by the project consortium. ..
  4. 4. johannes keizerhttp://aims.fao.org Key statements  Agreeing on the meaning of Infrastructure  Capacity development reigns  One software less, one Agreement (vocabularies, methodologies) more  Riding the mainstream for having impact  Specialize (software, ontologies), but only with a business model
  5. 5. johannes keizerhttp://aims.fao.org What is Infrastructure? - A new aggregated repository is not! - Wires (Grid,Cloud) and processing tools are not sufficient - The bottle neck is at the data provision side 5
  6. 6. johannes keizerhttp://aims.fao.org • CAAS Germplasm Data (CGRIS, China) • CRA Soil Data (Italy) You will find these data not even with GOOGLE! The main problems • Resistance to make the data open • Undeclared idiosyncratic description of data 2 Examples
