IGAD Pre-meeting - Helsinki. October 2019

Dear all,

Unfortunately we have not been succesful in finding a venue for the IGAD Pre-Meeting in Helsinki nor any kind of funding for logistics. Without any support, we will need to postpone to the new RDA Plenary 15 in Australia.

We will submit in any case a proposal for a session of 90' during the Plenary, which needs to be submitted before the end of the month. If you would like to contribute, please let us know before the end of the week.

Thank you,

RE: [rda-agrdatainterop-ig][rda-wdinterop-wg][rda-agrisemantics-wg][rda-rice-wg][on-farm-data-sharing-wg][metrics-indicators-agriculture][agriculturecapacitydev] News about the IGAD chairs

Dear Imma, all,
It's been a great and rewarding experience being part of the Interest Group on Agricultural Data and following the various working groups.
Unfortunately, like Imma said, due to incompatibilities with the characteristics of my work as an academic researcher, I have to interrupt it, for the respect that I give to the role of being a co-chair and the expectancies that it implies.
I want to thank personally Imma, Patricia and Esther for being such a wonderful team to work with. And, obviously, the warm community that has gathered around this group.
