AGINFRA PLUS aspired to provide a sustainable channel addressing adjacent but not fully connected user communities around Food & Agriculture, by exploiting core European e-infrastructures such as EGI.eu, OpenAIRE and D4Science. To this end, the project developed, extended and provided the necessary specifications and components for allowing the rapid and intuitive development of variegating data analysis workflows, where the functionalities for data storage and indexing, algorithm execution,

Furthermore, AGINFRA PLUS aspired to establish a framework facilitating the transparent documentation, exploitation and publication of research assets (datasets, mathematical models, software components result and publications), in order to enable their reuse and repurposing from the wider research community. Thus, the vision of AGINFRA PLUS project was to develop a common technical infrastructure that could initially serve three user communities (namely, Agro-climatic and Economic Modelling, Food Safety & Risk Assessment and Food Security) and it could be evolved to an AGINFRA food cloud demonstrator that could be positioned as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)1 agri-food thematic cloud. WP8 concentrates on the dissemination of the project and its results among the identified target groups by using online and offline dissemination channels and activities. More specifically, WP8 focused on creating awareness and engaging further the scientific communities that are related to each one of the three user communities of the project (namely, Agro-climatic and Economic Modelling, Food Safety & Risk Assessment and Food Security) and (b) creating general awareness about AGINFRA PLUS and the types of innovative services that scientists may use, in other scientific communities and networks (Task 8.2). Moreover, linking AGINFRA PLUS with international initiatives and network [...]
