Agro-Know is really glad to host the upcoming AGRIS strategy meeting at its offices. The meeting will take place between 9-13 of March 2015 and will include members of the AGRIS Steering Committee (FAO, CAAS and Agro-Know) who will spend the next days working collaboratively on topics that will formulate the next steps of AGRIS. This is expected to include the outcomes of the AGRIS e-Consultation Survey that ran over the previous months and will built on the previous AGRIS meeting that was also hosted by Agro-Know last October, following up the announcement of the new AGRIS Partnership on September 2014.
The AK team participates jointly at the meeting room using a screen projector!
This time the UNFAO team will be represented only by Fabrizio Celli. On the other hand, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences will be represented by our long time friends and collaborators Dr Sun Wei & Dr Xian Guojian. Even though the whole Agro-Know team will be around, our core AGRIS team consisting of Elena, Patrycja and Nikos Manolis will be the ones actually contributing to the meeting (Giorgos, the person involved in the AGRIS data ingestion processes is also at San Diego with Johannes, for the 5th RDA Plenary), along with Agro-Know CEO Nikos Manouselis & COO Giannis Stoitsis who are also involved at a higher level in the Steering Committee of AGRIS.
As you may already know, through a strategic partnership with the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and the ARIADNE Foundation, Agro-Know is hosting the Data Processing Unit of the traditional AGRIS service.
We will try to keep you posted of the outcomes of the AGRIS strategy meeting so stay tuned!
