CORBEL Catalogue of Services

 

Why do we need a Catalogue of Services?

Currently there are 13 biological and medical sciences Research Infrastructures (RIs) in Europe, all of them working jointly together in CORBEL towards offering shared services for life-science.
All RIs offer services, i.e. researchers from academia and industry can access their facilities, technologies and expertise. Services can simply be consultation, access to experts, but also access to data and biological samples, use of data analysis tools, access to facilities (e.g. highly specialised microscopes) plus support from technicians and much more.

The CORBEL Catalogue of Services is the first tool to list the main services of all these RIs at a glance and it aims to facilitate the utilisation of RI services by researchers from all over the world.

The Catalogue of Services as displayed below aims to provide you a basic overview on existing services within distinct thematic fields.
You can either use the Catalogue of Services to identify a single RI to help you with your work or you can create your own CORBEL service pipelines, i.e. using several RIs subsequently.

Examples of service pipelines are provided here.

EMPHASIS

Website: emphasis.plant-phenotyping.eu

Contact person(s): Dr. Roland Pieruschka, Dr. Sven Fahrner

EMPHASIS is a pan-European distributed plant phenotyping infrastructure project. EMPHASIS will focus on developing and enabling access to plant phenotyping infrastructure and provision of services, essential for the analysis of crop performance with respect to structure, function, quality and interaction with the environment. It will thus support the exploitation of crop genetic diversity required for the enhancement of plant productivity and progress in plant breeding.

Services provided

In cooperation with EPPN2020, EMPHASIS offers access to plant phenotyping infrastructures, this includes

  • high-throughput facilities
  • lean field facilities
  • intensive field facilities
  • assay development
  • data management

Further services are currently under development and will be implemented in its operational phase.

The access provided currently via EPPN2020 is free of charge for selected user-groups, based on a simple application procedure and includes the logistical, technological and scientific support as well as specific training required to successfully complete the approved Transnational Access project.
For further information please contact us.

Access modes

European-wide access to plant phenotyping infrastructures is currently under development in our partner project EPPN2020 and will provided via its homepage.
Access will be accordingly provided by EMPHASIS once it reaches its operational phase.

Why to work with us

EPPN2020 provides Transnational Access to plant phenotyping infrastructure as a basis for novel scientific approaches to quantitative plant assessment in high thoughput. The installations represent a diverse set of facilities for plant phenotyping in Europe with focus on: i) no-invasive high throughput phenotyping under controlled conditions, ii) destructive sampling aiming at assessing underlying traits helping to understand the genetic variability of different plant processes, iii) controlled field facilities allowing users to control rainfall and/or the concentration of air CO2 together with high-definition non-invasive sensors. Transnational Access will be available based on a simple and transparent access procedure.

Countries involved

Preparatory Phase of the project: BE, FR, IT, NL, UK, DE

Please note: Most of the RIs are constantly developing their portfolio of services, so if you do not find the service/tool you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact the RI and ask for it!

This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654248.
