The XF-ACTORS Digital Research Object Portal (DROP) has been launched

Within the framework of the EU-funded project XF-ACTORS, a portal called DROP (Digital Research Object Portal) was launched in January 2019. Its aim is to provide a unique entry point to search and access information on Xylella fastidiosa. The portal will allow users to retrieve open research data and open access documents that are stored in various information systems. In this portal, each digital object (research data and documents) is described by a set of internationally agreed metadata. Within the next few months, scientists working on X. fastidiosa (whether they participate or not in the XF-ACTORS project) will be invited to reference their research data on this portal.
