EPPN: European Plant Phenotyping Network

EPPN is an EU funded project with 14 participants

The project will establish the network that provides a structured and efficient development of a competitive plant phenotyping community in Europe. EPPN partners undertake a joint research program and offer access to their phenotyping infrastructure to peer-reviewed projects defined by users.

The key objectives of EPPN are to:

  • integrate European plant phenotyping efforts
  • enable close interaction between users of phenotyping platforms and developers of phenotyping technology
  • develop sensor technology, define and promote good phenotyping practice and IT standards for plant phenotyping
  • support access to major plant phenotyping facilities in Europe


Transnational access to installations across europe

EPPN offers European scientists transnational access to 23 experimental plant phenotyping installations, at 7 different institutions, in 5 countries across Europe between 1st of March 2012 and 31st December 2015.

Transnational access offered by the participating research infrastructures within EPPN includes:

  • free access for eligible user groups to research facilities
  • support for travel
  • free access for eligible user groups to research facilities
  • on-site logistic support by the infrastructure staff
  • access to knowledge and know-how at the research infrastructures necessary to complete the proposed experimental work


Access is granted on the basis of proposals that will be evaluated by independent reviewers.
