DPPN e.V.: Obtaining funding
DPPN e.V. is trying to obtain project funds to promote science and research as well as training, especially in the field of plant research. DPPN e.V. supports German science and research in particular by arranging and providing efficient infrastructure as well as a tested and robust phenotyping portfolio. With its three partners/members at the FZJ, IPK and HMGU, DPPN e.V. provides the infrastructural and scientific basis of DPPN, which has been under development since 2013. This also includes facilities that already existed at the sites prior to the DPPN project, those that were established from other sources during the DPPN project, and those that will be realized in the future.
DPPN e.V. has now successfully acquired the BMBF-funded pilot project "DPPN-ACCESS" (01.01.2022-31.12.2023). National access to the facilities will be granted to users who have no - or only insufficient - funds available and would not be able to carry out the work without the support from the DPPN-ACCESS. This is aimed in particular to university users and users from other publicly funded research institutions in Germany. Access is granted on basis of a simple application procedure.
