EPPN is an EU funded project with 14 participants


The project will establish the network that provides a structured and efficient development of a competitive plant phenotyping community in Europe. EPPN partners undertake a joint research program and offer access to their phenotyping infrastructure to peer-reviewed projects defined by users.


Elements Research Networking Access


The key objectives of EPPN are to:

  • integrate European plant phenotyping efforts
  • enable close interaction between users of phenotyping platforms and developers of phenotyping technology
  • develop sensor technology, define and promote good phenotyping practice and IT standards for plant phenotyping
  • support access to major plant phenotyping facilities in Europe
