  "abstract": "<p>This roadmap is one of the outputs of the e-ROSA project &ldquo;e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture&rdquo; funded by the European Union&rsquo;s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 730988. The consortium gathers two research performing organizations INRA (FR) and WUR (NL) and Agroknow (GR) a private company. More than 100 stakeholders were involved in the elaboration of this roadmap through the workshops and the project methodology to build a common knowledge, foresight and recommendations to achieve this vision.</p>\n\n<p>The process all along the project was &ldquo;as open as possible&rdquo; with workshops, open consultations to discuss, enrich and assess the proposals. The methodology allowed to:</p>\n\n<p><br>\n- Understand the actual landscape using i) a bibliometric study to identify the academic actors working on &ldquo;Data AND Agriculture&rdquo; ii) a bibliographic analysis of e-infrastructure roadmaps as reference for our future work iii) the identification and mapping of different entities (organization, initiatives, facilities, data points etc.) to describe the data ecosystem.<br>\n- Analyse the scientific challenges and researchers needs, working on use cases in different domains: smart farming, omics/phenotyping, food and nutrition, with interviews and workshop<br>\n- Describe a vision for open science in Agri-food and explain how an e-infrastructure could support this vision. The writing of this statement was planned from the beginning as a collaborative effort, not limited to the participants of the e-ROSA project. 17 professionals from 3 continents (USA, India, China, Europe) and important organizations (CGIAR, CAAS, ICAR, Bayer, INRA, CABI) participated in the online discussion and editing process.<br>\n- Elaborate recommendations to achieve the vision addressing different issues, not only technical but also on human and economic aspects: culture change, skills and sustainability of the envisioned e-infrastructure.</p>\n\n<p>Thus, this document is organized in 5 main sections:</p>\n\n<p><br>\n&bull; The vision &ldquo;Open science and Food systems in 2030&rdquo; as a driver of transformation<br>\n&bull; The challenges and the researchers&rsquo; needs to address<br>\n&bull; The analysis of the actual &ldquo;data ecosystem&rdquo;<br>\n&bull; The requirements for an e-infrastructure and its envisioned architecture<br>\n&bull; The recommendations for the implementation</p>\n\n<p>We have used the &ldquo;Share, connect, collaborate&rdquo; motto as guide trough this story as it appears to be the most federative challenges to build an e-infrastructure federating the actual scattered data ecosystem in the agri-food sciences:</p>\n\n<p><br>\n&bull; Sharing: of the resources of relevance to the scientific process (data, models, papers, etc). Open science is only possible if one is able to share one&rsquo;s research first.<br>\n&bull; Connecting: available resources need to be connected to allow integration and tackling large scale and more ambitious questions in science.<br>\n&bull; Collaborating: the research community itself needs to collaborate beyond ad-hoc arrangements to create, maintain and supply domain specific resources for open science in a network of regional or domain nodes.<br>\nThis version will be updated, the readers should refer to the web site http://erosa.aginfra.eu to be informed of the latest developments.</p>",
