As part of The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) meeting focusing on IGAD/RDA : Sharing Experiences and Creating Digital Dialogues, Richard Ostler, Rothamsted Research presented a webinar during the ‘Semantics’ group of presentations on May 26.
The webinar focused on ‘Adopting FAIR data principles for long-term agricultural experiments data.’ This presentation showed the approach to FAIRifying and publishing this data and the data management and cultural challenges this has raised. The presentation concluded with future capacity development training in collaboration with the GLTEN and the University of Sokoine, Tanzania, to improve data management skills and access to data across the global long-term agricultural experiments community.
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) meeting was set to be held in Rome (Italy) in April 2020 but instead, took place as a virtual meeting from May 25 to 28. The virtual meeting provided an online platform to continue to build upon collaborations, knowledge sharing and developing innovations with activities including panel sessions, group discussions and presentations.
