AIMS (Agricultural Information Management Standards) is a portal with information about and access to standards, technology and good practices. It is also a forum for connecting information management workers worldwide and for discussing open access and open data. AIMS newsletters are published monthly with a leading highlight from the community and collation of recent news published on AIMS. The scope of the AIMS newsletters is to bring to attention of the AIMS Community recent news, events, upcoming webinars and achievements in the agricultural information management.
The January issue of the AIMS newsletter is focused on the BigDataEurope project, including an interview with Bryn Williams-Jones, CEO of the Open PHACTS Foundation as well as a news item on the upcoming BigDataEurope Webinar@AIMS on the CGIAR approach to Big Data in the agricultural sector.
