Vergangene Termine & Veranstaltungen (DPPN e.V.)


The 6th DPPN project meeting will take place at the Forschungszentrum Jülich on December 13, 2018.


EPPN2020 provides researchers from academia and industry access to 31 phenotyping facilities in Europe. The facilities can be used for experiments with either scientific or technological objectives. EPPN2020 has now announced its 5th call for access, which is open to groups from Europe and (to a limited extent) from emerging countries or international research centres. Application can be submitted via the online application platform. The application deadline is 8 January 2020, and the final call will be launched in spring 2020.

The German Plant Phenotyping network (DPPN) is a network of three partners, who have set up a cutting-edge infrastructure including controlled and field environment facilities. As a next step, DPPN aims at providing access to these facilities following the success story established within the European Plant Phenotyping Network 2020 (EPPN2020). Additionally, EMPHASIS was introduced as a pan-European infrastructure aiming at the development of a sustainable pan-European infrastructure to provide access to the European plant science community.

The workshop was complemented by four presentations of EPPN2020 users of plant phenotyping facilities addressing:

-          The importance of high throughput phenotyping in dissecting traits relevant for nutrient uptake and accumulation in legumes by Marta Vasconcelos, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Porto, Portugal

-          Looking at useable - sunflower root phenotyping for improving drought tolerance, by Aleksandra Dimitrijevic, Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops, Novi Sad, Serbia

-          Pre-breeding of spring barley for the Nordic region, by Therése Bengtsson, SLU, Alnarp, Sweden

-          The challenge of phenotyping trees, by Doris Krabnbel, University Dersden, Germany

The 11th European Plant Science Retreat was hosted this year at the University of Nottingham from 8 to 10 of July. The annual conference is targeted at PhD students studying at European universities and aims to bring together early career researchers working in plant sciences. The meeting was hosted and organised by PhD students from the University of Nottingham with the generous financial support of the European Plant Phenotyping Network 2020 (EPPN2020) and other funding bodies.

During the Summer School Imaging & Phenotyping in Wageningen taking place from 8-12 July 2019, around 30 participants from industry and academia were trained in developing and programming of imaging and deep learning in phenotyping applications including demonstrations of robots and tools.
