Dear colleague,

I am inviting you to participate in the event ‘Plant Phenotyping Forum: integrating European plant phenotyping community’ which will take place at Dorpat Conference Centre in Tartu, Estonia, 22-24 November 2017.

The goals of this event are:

·       Presenting the opportunities to enable access to key plant phenotyping facilities within the EPPN2020 project

·       To illustrate different aspects of plant phenotyping and its applications for breeding and basic plant science by demonstrating a set of case studies

·       To provide opportunities for close interaction with phenotyping experts to discuss the needs and requirements for crop improvement

Registration and abstract submission deadline: 15 October 2017
