+ relationship between information providers

In recent years, agricultural research has become more multidisciplinary, and collaboration is common amongst information providers. Information providers from different sectors are alwasy interacting; for example, faculty from a university conduct research and present the results in conferences sponsered by a professional society, where researchers from various sectors also present data. In such conferences, all presenters and participants may interact and exchange ideas, and establish networks of information sharing. Sometimes these collaborations also generate funding for more extensive research projects.

The societies that sponsor conferences generally publish the proceedings later, making research results available to related research providers. This allows collaboration to carry on.

The diagram below shows the path of interaction between information providers.
