There will be an international workshop on 27/28 September in Berlin about "Linked Open Data in Agriculture". It is organised by the German Ministry for Agriculture and Nutrition, in collaboration with GODAN.

Linked Open Data (LOD) combines the technology of globally linked data with the philosophy of free access to information. LOD overcomes the limits which traditional information distribution reaches in view of the increasing amount of data and information. In the agricultural sector, efforts are being made to exploit the potential of this approach, in particular with regard to global food security, site-adapted agriculture and international research collaboration. In this process, it is important to overcome the obstacles and to network existing initiatives. We therefore invite you to a workshop which aims to promote the application of linked open data (LOD) in the agricultural sector. This event will take place during the German G20 presidency 2017 and is attached to activities of
the G20 Agricultural Chief Scientists (MACS) on information and communication technology (ICT), which China has initiated during its G20 presidency 2016.
