Die Mis­sion des Leib­niz-Zen­trums für Agrar­land­schafts­forschung (ZALF) e. V. als national und inter­na­tional agi­er­endes Forschung­szen­trum ist es, an der öko­nomisch, öko­lo­gisch und sozial nach­halti­gen Land­wirtschaft der Zukunft zu forschen – gemein­sam mit Akteuren aus der Wis­senschaft, Politik und Praxis.

FAIR­a­gro is a con­sor­tium in the National Research Data Infra­struc­ture (NFDI) in Ger­many. Aims and tasks of FAIR­a­gro com­prise the devel­op­ment of a net­worked research data man­age­ment for agrosys­tems research and the estab­lish­ment of an inter­op­er­able, scal­able, qual­ity-assured and user-friendly research data infra­struc­ture under con­sid­er­a­tion of the FAIR prin­ciples. FAIR­a­gro will make research data find­able (F), access­ible (A), inter­op­er­able (I), and reusable (R) by other research­ers. The Data Stew­ard Ser­vice Cen­ter (DSSC) is the cent­ral insti­tu­tion within FAIR­a­gro for coordin­at­ing data man­age­ment and anchor­ing it in the sci­entific com­munity. The DSSC organ­izes the con­tinu­ous exchange of know­ledge and exper­i­ence in the field of research data man­age­ment (RDM) with other insti­tu­tions, e.g. through train­ing, chan­nels user requests from the com­munity to the Data Stew­ards as des­ig­nated experts in the field of agri­cul­tural RDM.
