EMPHASIS Field Phenomics workshop


EMPHASIS Field Phenomics workshop, on the 6th of September 2018, is a satellite meeting of the

Biometrics Eucarpia Conference in Ghent on 3-5 September’18

The Field Phenomics workshop is focused on discussing future field trial and breeding research, in a (pan-)European context. The workshop will address the demand and requirements of the field trail researchers and breeders from academia and industry and the role of the ESFRI infrastructure projects EMPHASIS to support field phenomics.

This field phenomics workshop will include a field site visit to the fields of the Institute for Agricultural, Fisheries and Food Research (ILVO) in Melle, close to Ghent, presentations about the latest development in field phenomics and discussions how EMPHASIS may support field phenomics.

A bus will pick you up in the Ghent city center at 9AM. The pickup place will be announced after registration. A preliminary program of the day you can find below.
