The AGINFRA+ Vision: Serving the European Scientists Across Food Systems

  1. 1. AGINFRA PLUS - Accelerating user-driven e-infrastructure innovation in Food & Agriculture has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 731001. The AGINFRA+ Vision: Serving the European Scientists Across Food Systems Wageningen, The Netherlands | 24 November 2017 Dr. Panagiotis Zervas Agroknow
  2. 2. Serving European scientists across food systems [Wim Haentjens (DG RTD) presentation during the 1st eROSA workshop, Montpellier, France, 6-7 July 2017]
  3. 3.  To explore how European scientists may use, adapt and evolve existing open e- infrastructure resources and services that will be part of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)  To demonstrate and pilot how the development of innovative data- and computing-intensive applications can take place, in order to accelerate scientific discoveries in agriculture and food Challenges
  4. 4.  Europe's final transition must be one from fragmented data sets to an integrated European Open Science Cloud. By 2020, we want all European researchers to be able to deposit, access and analyse European scientific data through a European Open Science Cloud. [Speech by Commissioner Carlos Moedas in Amsterdam, NL: “Open science: share and succeed”, 4 April 2016]  It will federate existing and emerging horizontal and thematic data infrastructures, effectively bridging today’s fragmentation and ad-hoc solutions  It will provide 1.7M EU researchers an environment with free, open services for data storage, management, analysis and re-use across disciplines  It will add value (scale, data-driven science, inter-disciplinarity, data to knowledge to innovation) and leverage current and past infrastructure investment [Wim Haentjens (DG RTD) presentation during the Big Data Europe SC2 Policy Advisory Workshop, Brussels, Belgium, 30 September 2016] The EOSC Vision
  5. 5.  Aims to exploit core e-infrastructures such as, OpenAIRE, EUDAT and D4Science and customize/extend them towards providing a sustainable channel for addressing adjacent but not fully connected user communities around Agriculture and Food  Focuses on three main communities:  Related to global agricultural modelling, inter-comparison, and improvement of the research community that studies short and long-term food production under environmental and climate change conditions.  Related to addressing specific problems on food security, namely the need to efficiently analyze data produced by plant phenotyping and its correlation with crop yield, resource usage and local climates.  Related to the design of new high-performance food safety data processing workflows AGINFRA+ (2017-2019)
  6. 6. Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme - grant agreement No 730988 1st Workshop, July 6th and 7th, 2017 Berlin-March-2017.pdf Other EINFRA H2020 Projects (2017-2019)
  7. 7.  Builds a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture and make it operable through pragmatic recommendations that will be reflected in a common roadmap  Through a process of co-design, involving mainly research and education communities but also practitioners and EU policy makers, and will build on the existing projects, networks, international alliances or initiatives. Three (3) workshops:  Community Building and Fine-Mapping Workshop (6-7 July 2017), Montpellier, France  Challenges & Solutions Envisioning Workshop (27-28 November 2017), Wageningen, The Netherlands  Foresight Roadmap Workshop (May 2018), Chania, Greece eROSA (2017-2018)
  8. 8.  Build on top of the AGINFRA+ infrastructure  Implement the eROSA roadmap  Run pilots in larger scale based on the selected use cases across the Food System  Show case the operational mode of EOSC (e.g. a thematic EOSC marketplace for cloud & data services)  Would focus on the H2020 DT-SFS-26-2019: Food Cloud demonstrators [Deadline: 23/1/2019] An AGINFRA Cloud (2020-2022)
  9. 9. Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme - grant agreement No 730988 1st Workshop, July 6th and 7th, 2017 Berlin-March-2017.pdf Cloud
  10. 10.  Collecting and promoting appropriate and mature use cases through the AGINFRA+ and eROSA channels  Organising hands-on workshops (2017-2018) jointly with AGINFRA+ where use case stakeholders can test various EINFRA services & resources  Develop a pipeline of mature use cases that demonstrate the potential of large scale piloting in a Food Cloud demonstrator Looking for future science use cases across the Food System
