New AIMS members in AgriVIVO
Some time ago we introduced AgriVIVO to the AIMS community. AgriVIVO is a search portal built to facilitate connections between all actors in the agricultural field, bridging across separately hosted directories and online communities.
We are very glad that in the last month 21 new people from the AIMS community agreed to have their profiles featured in AgriVIVO, which brings the number of AIMS members in the portal to 86!
Remember that as a member of AIMS you can update your profile and agree to have it featured in AgriVIVO following the instructions available at "Are you an AIMS member? Then have your profile included in AgriVIVO". Data from AIMS will be imported again at the beginning of August 2013 and then every month.
New data provider CABI
We welcome a new data provider: CABI has contributed a database of 66 experts, which broadens the range of expertise represented in AgriVIVO. CABI is a very well known not-for-profit international organization that improves people’s lives by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment. The database of experts that they shared with AgriVIVO comprises mostly experts in plant protection, crop management, entomology, molecular biology and information science.
Invitation to contribute to AgriVIVO
We invite all organizations and communities that have data on experts or Institutions to contribute these data to AgriVIVO to improve collaboration across Institutions, countries and disciplines.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for devising the best procedure to share your data.
