Satellite Meeting: Plant Phenotyping

at the SEB in Gothenburg

The one day workshop took place on July 7, 2017 in Gothenburg (Sweden). This workshop was part of a series of regional conferences that aim to strengthen the interaction within the plant phenotyping community. In the context of regional conferences, EMPHASIS-PREP aims at developing a business plan and sound legal framework for the establishment of a long- term sustainable pan-European phenotyping infrastructure.

The meeting was organised in three different parts including presentations and an interactive discussion. In the beginning of the workshop the participants were informed about the structure and objectives of EMPHASIS and EMPHASIS-PREP. In a second part of the meeting representives of the phenotyping community informed about the status of the plant phenotyping in nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, UK). On basis of this information an open discussion took place in the afternoon, to find out more about needs and expectations of the plant phenotyping community .
