Technical Abstract: USDA' Partnerships for Data Innovation was established in 2019. PDI is a partnership between agricultural research (ARS, university, and industry) and the private-sector technology companies that serves to equip ARS researchers with practical, innovative data management solutions that allow researchers to harness the possibilities of the digital revolution while shaping new habits that are consistent with FAIR principles. PDI has integrated its partners in the development of state-of-the art digital solutions, applying off-the-shelf technologies from private-sector partners to ensure rapid adoption and application of their data management products. In doing so, PDI introduces its partners to the ethic of data stewardship, building good habits and a culture of data management that ensure standardization, automation, and integration.
