The case of Bulgarian RDA-Europe supported project is presented in the blog series of RDA, aiming to introduce the eight Adoption Grant cases supported in 2019, giving an overview of their project remits and demonstrating the practical approaches organisations can take when looking to implement the RDA’s Recommendations & Outputs.
The project A Model Of Data Integration Related To Wheat Genetic Resources And Resistance To Fusarium Head Blight of Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics (FMI) at Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski is awarded an RDA Europe grant. It aims to develop a model of unifying the knowledge concerned with the study of wheat and the factors affecting the health and viability of the cereal. Unlike some of the other adoptions funded through RDA Europe grants, the case put forward by Dr Vassilev and his colleagues is not building on an existing project. What is proposed is a sort of test case for the future development of searchable database of wheat-related resources, which will eventually include the development of a querying tool that will allow for more sophisticated searches of the relevant resources to be conducted.
