I am attaching the proposal for setting up a WG on Rice Data Interoperability.
The RDI Working Group aims to reinforce synergies between rice research & development organizations to support food security, nutritional value and safety while taking into account societal demands for sustainable and resilient agricultural production systems.
- provide a forum to facilitate communication between research groups and organisations worldwide on effective sharing of rice research data
- foster communication between the research community, funders and global policy makers at the international level to meet their research and development goals
- facilitate and ensure the rapid exchange of information and know-how among researchers, and support knowledge transfer to breeders and farmers
We will come your feedback and support to this WG is possible by 10th of June 2016. We are looking for more group members, please do not hesitate to share the document with anyone who could be interested!
