The AGRIS Country Hub in Georgia, Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (TECHINFORMI) of the Georgian Technical University, has launched the campaign "Discover the latest trends and the most demanded data in agricultural research via open science knowledge platform – AGRIS", which will run from 10 November to 10 December 2022.

The campaign aims to promote and increase awareness of AGRIS, an open science platform, for agricultural research development in Georgia, and to consolidate the capacity of enhancing the visibility, accessibility and usability of agricultural data among all targeted communities, scientists and research organizations in the country.

Open science is an approach based on open cooperative work and systematic sharing of knowledge and tools as early and widely as possible in the process. Open access to research outputs such as publications, datasets, models, algorithms and workflows is crucial for the development of research in the field of food and agriculture, and is a powerful tool for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals SDGs).

An AGRIS Country Hub since 2020, TECHINFORMI has been contributing bibliographic records to the AGRIS database since 2000.
