With the world’s population estimated to reach some 9.6 billion by the middle of this century, 5 billion are expected to rely on rice for their food and livelihoods. To meet the food demand of an increasing population, growing more rice with less land and water is a must.
By providing high-capacity network connectivity as well as dataset storage, TEIN allows scientists and researchers from across the world to join forces to facilitate data-intensive collaborative crop research, thereby helping farmers increase rice production and sustain their livelihoods. TEIN supports researchers to share and exchange data at any time and from any location and conduct time- and cost-effective videoconferences for further study and discussion. This eventually contributes to addressing food security, one of the world’s most pressing concerns.
