Workshop title: The roadmap to better food: using ICT an open data to overcome barriers in the agriculture value chain
The session will discuss infrastructures for open science in the agri-food domain. It will also discuss the issue and the importance of open data for agricultural and agri-food communities and science.
Exploiting open data in combination with farmers’ local knowledge, and the parallel processing of them by targeted Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools, support farmers in the application of ecological principles in food production. A broader access to open data and data analytic tools for agriculture mediated by public open access initiatives can help to provide farmers more power in the information management sector and to implement tools supporting the transition towards sustainable agri-food systems. Here we present the experience of H2020 CAPSELLA project (www.capsella.eu) in developing new models of participatory innovation in biodiversity-based agriculture working with open software, open data and open hardware.
Currently there are a lot of stakeholders involved in the data collection and management in agriculture (companies, organizations, public authorities, farmers). However the accessible on all these data is still questionable. In this context open data has become and should more widely used within the agricultural data environment. The context under which open data should be used and analyzed in agro-food sector is presented together with some so far success stories.
