Workshops to enable technology development
Two dedicated workshops "Novel Sensors Technologies for Plant Phenotyping" for the interaction between technology developers and platform operators will be organized to facilitate and define need and potential development roadmaps for:
- Novel sensors and approaches for phenotyping to optimize and extend the pool of measurable plant traits
- Adaptation and standardization of the novel plant trait-oriented assays
- Protocols and procedures for data storage and exchange
The aim is to identify technologies that are not yet utilized by the EPPN platforms and to foster joint technology development projects beyond those already available at the phenotyping platforms locations. These events will also include technology developing groups outside the EPPN. Activities developed from these workshops aim at assist the selection of additional technology development projects that may be supported by existing funding schemes at the partners' platforms.
