Introduction:

agINFRA is a European innovative Integrated Infrastructure Initiative (I3) project -- launched November 2011 -- that will introduce agricultural scientific communities to the vision of open and participatory data-intensive science. To achieve this aim, agINFRA will design and develop a scientific data infrastructure for agricultural sciences that will facilitate the development of policies and services that promote the sharing of data among agricultural scientists in a manner that develops trust within and amongst their communities. The project’s website www.aginfra-project.eu is currently under construction, to be ready for a January 2012 launch. (AIMS Blog via GSDI newsletter, 15/11/2011)
