The European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) has identified “Plant Phenotyping” as a priority for the European research area and EMPHASIS has been listed on the ESFRI Roadmap 2016 for Research Infrastructures (published on 10 March 2016) as an infrastructure project to develop and implement a pan-European plant phenotyping infrastructure.

The European Union is funding a four-year-long project called EMPHASIS-PREP in order to bring EMPHASIS to the level of legal, financial and technical maturity required for full implementation. With the kick-off of EMPHASIS-PREP on 1 January 2017, EMPHASIS has entered the Preparatory Phase.
