Why EMPHASIS?


EMPHASIS is a pan-European distributed infrastructure listed on the ESFRI Roadmap for multi-scale plant phenotyping and simulation for food security in a changing climate. EMPHASIS aims at  supporting  the exploitation of crop genetic diversity required for the enhancement of plant productivity and progress in plant breeding. The infrastructure will enable diverse users to quantify a diversity of plant traits and the analysis of genotype performance in in current and future agro-climatic scenarios.

EMPHASIS will establish a link between data acquisition, pan-European data management and crop models simulating performance in different environmental scenarios. State of the art facilities and concepts will be accessible to users from academia and industry that will deliver scientific breakthrough, innovation and maintain Europeans leadership in plant phenotyping.
