In the last several years, a variety of approaches and tools have been developed for giving access to open educational resources (OER) related to food safety, security, and food standards, as well to various targeted audiences (e.g., farmers, agronomists). The aim of this paper is to present a technology infrastructure currently in demonstration mode at Michigan State University that will collect various agricultural education content (training descriptions, open educational content, competencies, and standards) and provide them through various interfaces, based on the needs of the targeted audience. The overall architecture of the infrastructure for the food safety sector and the needed components are presented, as well as the main usage scenarios that explain how the infrastructure can enhance existing platforms and services in the area of food safety and food security.
