The 2020 Annual AGRIS community meeting is designed to discuss thematic topics and cross-cutting topics on management of AGRIS, its use and other related developments, in particular in the context of research data in agriculture. The workshop’s objective is to enhance knowledge sharing and improve visibility and access to agricultural sciences and the technical content of agricultural research. The workshops will focus in particular on latest AGRIS developments and new partnerships.
This year's community meeting is part of Information 4 Innovation in Food and Agriculture (I4IFA), a series of collaborative online classes put together by FAO and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA). I4IFA (29 June to 3 July 2020) includes virtual sessions designed to pool expertise and experience from the two leading agricultural organizations and other partners and focuses on increasing the quality and impact of information, knowledge management and data exchange in food and agriculture research for development.
