  3. 3. Goals • Capture current State-of-the-Art in Linked Open Data • Determine data demand and supply • Exchange failure and success stories • Discuss on applications and usage (potential and realized) • Develop options for further actions (political and technical)
  4. 4. Topics adressed • Research data sharing • Availability and security • Data models • Open geodata • Visualisation, navigation and search • Vocabularies, classifications and thesauri • Earth observation and remote sensing • Applications in livestock farming • Supply chain and traceability • Monitoring and documentation
  5. 5. Further Information • Announcement and Call: 2017.pdf • Workshop presentations: loda/lectures/
  6. 6. FAIR principles •Findable •Accessible •Interoperable •Reusable = FAIR
  7. 7. ATS and GRCP • Plenary session on 28th of September with a keynote from CAAS • Impression from the POV of an „external observer“: • There is no agreed-upon view on ATS goals and functionalities yet • Required architectural components on a high level are not yet clearly worked out • It is a large undertaking, as to the question where runs what therefore: technical necessities and possibilities need to be considered: „Scale or fail!“ • It should however be possible to find a balanced distribution of tasks and responsibilities • There are differing opinions on the meaning of the P in GRCP: this should be clarified before discussing the relation of ATS and GRCP
  8. 8. Final plenary results • Reuse what‘s there, look for synergies • Requires healing the „not-invented-here“ syndrome • Governments should support open data • GODAN as a vehicle for networking and empowerment • Enduser perspective as a principle • Strengthen the process of collaboration • No heavy, administrative frameworks, lightweight collaboration • Enforce ongoing processes

Actions within the network: • Microclusters of stakeholders that work on single things that have an impact: • Data providers • Domain experts • … • Followup workshop: • Let people state shortly what they‘re good at • Start forming microcluster • Think big, start small: a little bit of metadata often helps already!
  11. 11. Conclusions • Innovations and applications based on data provided according to FAIR principles start gaining ground • followup actions on Linked Open Data should focus on collaboration and reuse • MACS can foster developments by: • Confirming the opinion that access to data is of importance for agricultural innovation • Endorsing FAIR principles • Helping developing definitions of data rights and responsibilities • Encouraging catalyzing work done by organisations like GODAN, RDA etc.
