RDI Update and Survey

Dear all, 
Thanks to the Wheat group and co-chairs, we developed an online questionnaire to identify data management practices and related challenges within the rice community.
Please find the online questionnaire following this link https://goo.gl/forms/QZ6grtMOOjqeeiZR2
The link will be active one month but we encourage  you to answer as soon as possible.

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.
