Andre Jellema from Data Impact
"My drive is to realize societal impact with data in agriculture working on the interface between end-users, stake holders and application. I always try to get the why question answered in order to figure out what is really needed by the end users. I have a background in open data, spatial modelling, remote sensing and agriculture and a PhD from Wageningen University in the Netherlands."
The AgPack suggests 6 policy areas where Open Data can support the agricultural sector and identifies 14 data categories to realize impact in the agricultural sector. For more information on AgPack click here.
The introduction on AgPack is also organized in the framework of the online Discussion that will take place on the e-Agriculture platformfrom the 10th of July till the 24th of July.
The online forum discussion is organized to help fine-tune the AgPack to provide the most useful resource possible for individuals and governments anywhere in their open data journey. By framing this discussion in personal experiences, the forum aims to get a fuller picture on challenges policy-makers and government workers, agriculturalist, and open data experts experience in their day-to-day.
From 10 July, you can start sending your feedback on e-Agriculture online forum.
