The Institute of Bio- and Geosciences, Plant Sciences Division (IBG-2), develops integrated concepts for the intensification and sustainability of plant production for the bioeconomy on the basis of molecular, physiological and ecological expertise. The aim is to improve yield, adapt quality to different forms of use (food, feed, raw materials, bioenergy), close nutrient cycles – generally adapt both production and product use to future climate and production conditions. IBG-2 is a world leader in plant phenotyping, with excellent knowledge of the dynamic interaction between plants and the environment, combined with technology development, engineering and bioinformatics. The department develops and operates relevant next-generation infrastructure platforms and technologies and makes them available to external users.
Infrastructure platforms for plant phenotyping produce large volumes of data, which require sound management to ensure they are available, accessible, interoperable, and reusable for the scientific community. Within the scope of DPPN, EPPN 2020, Emphasis, and EOSC-Life projects, IBG-2 is working together with national and international partners on a pan-European e-infrastructure and is developing data management strategies, tools, and demonstrators.
