EMPHASIS Preparatory Phase Support Groups (SG)
The EMPHASIS-SG consists of representatives of the national communities of plant phenotyping interested in EMPHASIS. They inform and include their national plant phenotyping community in the process to design and set-up EMPHASIS. Each representative commits to support the development of EMPHASIS based on a mandate from their national plant phenotyping community by signing the so-called Policy Manifesto.
In that context, the EMPHASIS-Support Group plays an essential role to address the national and European Plant Phenotyping community at large.
