Plant phenotyping is a new and interdisciplinary research field, which needs “human resources” as a key for a successful future development. Phenotyping requires interaction with many other disciplines and thus needs to practically overcome the barriers between them. The integrated center approach of DPPN provides the expertise and facilities needed for the development of an integrative educational program.
The goal of DPPN is to offer a modular education concept comprising freely combinable theoretical and practical modules which can be adjusted to varying target groups (from academia to industry and breeders). Users of DPPN will be trained in plant phenotyping and transfer this knowledge into their home institutions.
Therefore different instruments are available as for example
- summer schools
