Project 4: ICT in Legume Support – Introduction

The modern agriculture value and research chain contain many data management aspects that are even giving rise to novel domains such as agro-informatics. Current low levels of human and technological capacity to harness respective data-intensive methods form a major developmental challenge for the South. This project aims at improving capacity in (a) the field of data science pertaining to data gathering, storage, analytics and dissemination (b) the domain-specific knowledge needed to offer ICT-support for agricultural research.
