No. of contract:
FNS-Cloud will launch a first-generation ‘food cloud’, federating existing and emerging datasets and develop new services to support re-use by researchers.
Existing FNS resources (data, knowledge and tools) for health and agri-food sciences are fragmented, lack critical mass, and access by user communities is ‘unevenly’ distributed. This means data are not readily found, accessible, interoperable or reusable, and existing services focus on clinical, molecular or biological sciences.
