The solution presented enables a farmer to create contract documents and transmit them to service providers and contract partners using the Internet. agro.Connectrlp will be presented in the Public Sector Parc in hall 9, booth C39/02 at the joint booth of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
Using agro.Connect rlp, it will be possible to include geographical data (aerial photographs, location and boundaries of cultivated areas) into agricultural documentation, administration, and business workflows, and exchange them. The crucial issue is the flexible usage of data that has been recorded once, and the avoidance of unnecessary multiple entries. To achieve this goal, the new technology dynamically combines geodata from the state government with user data from farm administration programs.
The architecture is based on the principle of data sovereignty: Farm data worth protecting remain under the farmer's control - a crucial prerequisite for the acceptance of this technology throughout the domain. agro.Connectrlp is being built on the basis of open standards (including XForms, ebXML, UBL, OGC, agroXML) and a service-oriented architecture (SOA); a prototype is being developed and a pilot project is taking place. First practical experiences have already been made; several software developing companies have already expressed their interest in agro.Connect rlp.
The project agro.Connect rlp is being carried out by Fraunhofer IESE and the Competence Center for Innovative Information Systems of the University of Applied Sciences Bingen together with the Service Center Rural Region Rheinhessen-Nahe-Hunsrück. It is funded by the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Transportation, Agriculture and Viniculture of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Other states will also be able to benefit from the developments initiated by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.Contact:
Under the leadership of Prof. Dieter Rombach and Prof. Peter Liggesmeyer, the past decade has seen us making major contributions to strengthening the emerging IT location Kaiserslautern.
In the Fraunhofer Information and Communication Technology Group, we are cooperating with other Fraunhofer institutes on developing trend-setting key technologies for the future.
Fraunhofer IESE is one of 56 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Together we have a major impact on shaping applied research in Europe and contribute to Germany's competitiveness in international markets. The institute is officially a "Selected Landmark 2008" of the German-wide initiative "Germany - Land of Ideas".

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
