Opportunities to grow our capability – This report assess the future infrastructure landscape and identifies needs, opportunities and key themes that could be a major benefit to the UK’s capabilities to 2030. It is intended as a strategic guide to inform investment decisions for the next generation of infrastructure.
PhenomUK’s 1st Call for funded project – Accepted projects
PhenomUK received 13 applications in total. The outcome of our 1st call enabled us to fund four projects in this round. We would have liked to fund more but we encourage applications for our 2nd call, especially from early career researchers.
The four successful projects are as follows:
Project Title: Investigation of microwave imaging for internal fruit quality and below-ground phenotyping.
Principal investigator: Dr Bo Li Institute: NIAB EMR
Award amount: £24,618
Project Title: Implementation of active 3D Multispectral imaging and photmetric stereo systems as early stage phenotyping tool for morphological features and biotic stress quantification within complementary demonstrator phenotyping centres (IBERS & P3)
Principal investigator: Professor Bruce Grieve Institute: University of Manchester
Award amount: £18,480
Project Title: An intelligent, low-cost adaptive 3D multi-scale imaging system for advanced plant phenotyping (PS-Plant+)
