How do you see the future of Agrisemantics? Give your opinion!

Dear all,
The concept of "Agrisemantics" was born after the 2015 "Improving Semantics in Agriculture" workshop in Rome. Since then, "Agrisemantics" has emerged as a sort of brand to denote respectively an RDA working group, a wide community of interest, or something more concrete and actionable to be defined.
