Agriscontent task force meets in Wageningen

Following discussions in Rome in October 2005, FAO has convened several task forces looking at ways to enhance the coherence among different agricultural information systems.

In early March 2007, members of the 'agriscontent' task force met to take stock of progress and to identify potential new areas for collaboration in the field of content management.

Issues discussed were:
  • The Open Access publishing paradigm
  • Subject vocabularies and advanced semantic applications
  • Newsfeeds and Web2.0 approaches
  • Integrated systems
Participants also formulated conclusions and recommended further actions in preparation for the second Expert Consultation to be held in Rome in September 2007.
