FAIRagro aims to advance agrosystem research by strengthening linkages across disciplines, scales and methods through collaborative RDM. By integrating the interdisciplinary agrosystem scientific community into FAIRagro, we endeavor to create the basis for a broad recognition and acceptance by the wider agricultural science community of the benefits and need for FAIR RDM approaches.

Our mission

FAIRagro is open and community driven and already does and will continously identify community needs and participate it in order to develop services and products really needed und used.  With this overarching aim, we will establish an interoperable and scalable RDI by connecting available repositories to make research data FAIR.

We will facilitate combined data analyses and establish a multilevel support system by setting up a Data Steward Service Center. We will provide guidelines and information material, and focus on knowledge transfer for agrosystem researchers. FAIRagro will address quality and legal security challenges beyond the FAIR principles. Our 10 objectives will guide us on this way.
