Joint Research Activities (JRA)

We have designed three Joint Research Activities (JRA) to address the major challenges facing phenotyping. After that a large number of platforms has been built, the priority now is to design methods for the analysis of heterogeneous datasets involving thousands/millions of data points, contrasting environmental conditions and tens/hundreds of measured traits. EPPN2020 also aims at organizing these datasets in such a way that they are comparable so joint analyses can be performed across platforms, in an open data environment.

Three interdependent Joint Research Activities have been implemented with close links between them and strong interaction with each installation of EPPN2020


Joint Research Activity 1 (JRA1)

Novel techniques and methods for environmental and plant measurements, including model-assisted
