Since its inception in 2013, the Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) has grown in community strength to over 170 members, and is now one of the Research Data Alliance’s most prominent Thematic Groups. IGAD is a domain-oriented group working on all issues related to global agriculture data. It represents stakeholders involved in managing data for agricultural research and innovation, this includes those producing, aggregating and consuming data. IGAD also promotes good practices in research with regards to data sharing policies; data management plans; and data interoperability. In addition, IGAD is a forum for sharing experiences and providing visibility to research and work in agricultural data.
One of the IGAD’s main roles is to serve as a vehicle that leads to the creation of domain-specific Working Groups. The second day of the pre-meeting will be dedicated to the working groups already associated to IGAD: Agrisemantics Working Group, On-Farm Data Sharing Working Group, Metrics and Indicators in Agricultural Sciences BoF, Capacity Development Working Group, Wheat Data Interoperability Working Group.
