OSISClick here to open OSIS database
The overall objective of this WP is to elaborate the technical set-up of OSIS to allow usage by deposition and extraction of data as well as the concept paper for OSIS output for each of all the different user groups.
To be achieved by:
2.1 evaluating nationally available (marketing) databases for implementation of OSIS;
2.2 setting up a multilingual and centrally based data folder (OSIS) for data deposition by sensory laboratories and an interface scheme for data exchange to nationally available database solutions or directly into other formats;
2.3 elaboration of concept for data exchange;
2.4 elaborating a concept for OSIS output, taking account of SMEs, SME-AGs and end-users and involving them accordingly.
T 2.1 Technical implementation of OSIS
From a technical point of view the Organic Sensory Information System (OSIS) consists of a centrally based data folder for data deposition accessible to all participating sensory laboratories along with an interface scheme that serves as
a basis for data exchange. This task is concerned with organising the multilingual and centrally based data folder, either for joint usage and maintenance or for potential data transfer to existing marketing databases or other solutions in the different countries in the appropriate language. The technical solution will be made available to all stakeholders involved and will be tailored to their needs. This includes storing the data from the research
elaborated in this project in the centrally based OSIS data folder and making it available to the SME-AGs and the SMEs. It is part of the project to evaluate the options for making data available to the different countries.
T 2.2 Development of a draft concept for OSIS output
This task consists in developing the OSIS draft concept for all the tested product groups and products by further developing the draft fact sheet provided in WP1 and identifying and recommending the relevant sensory, marketing, regulatory and standard data for the needs of retailers, processors and producers, SME-AGs, as well as end-users.
FiBL is responsible for ensuring that all relevant data gained from the research will be made available to the targeted users. The draft concept paper will elaborate various levels of data access based on the needs of the targeted stakeholders and will highlight the relevant specific information, e.g. for easy-reading fact sheets, relevant to the needs of the different stakeholders.
T 2.3 Needs of stakeholders regarding the OSIS output concept
All SMEs, SME-AGs as well as consumers involved in WP3 and WP4 will have the opportunity to comment on the OSIS draft output concept paper elaborated in T 4.2 in terms of weaknesses and strengths and potential improvements. FiBL will elaborate an electronic questionnaire to be sent to the SMEs and SME-AGs involved as well as to selected consumers from the WP3 and WP4 studies. The draft concept paper will be modified by FiBL according to the feedback received, and the final concept will be put on the project website.
