The Austrian Plant Phenotyping Network (APPN), initiated by VBCF PlantS in 2017, is an Austrian network of biologists, breeders, technology developers, imaging experts, statisticians and bioinformaticians working in the field of plant phenotyping.
The APPN aims to unite the Austrian plant phenotyping community in order to facilitate research collaborations, development of plant phenotyping infrastructure and methodologies, staff training, staff exchange and networking activities. The goal is to increase the visibility and impact of plant phenotyping and to facilitate communication between stakeholders in academia, industry, government, and the general public. The initiative intends to support the ESFRI-EMPHASIS project and to reach a legal status by the end of 2017.
