"DPPN-ACCESS" offers access to phenotyping infrastructures of the three sites FZJ, IPK and HMGU to researchers from publicly funded research institutions in Germany. Special attention will be paid to German universities, and to early career scientists who would not be able to perform the experiment without the support from DPPN Access. Accesses can aim at addressing basic and applied questions by using phenotyping facilities and technologies. This may include question related to plant science, breeding, technology development or validation.

Access is granted on the basis of proposals. Applications must be submitted in English to ensure an international peer review.
