The Netherlands Plant Eco-phenotyping Centre: NPEC

NPEC provides scientists and industry with a state-of-art plant phenotyping facility to unravel the genetics behind the interactions between environment and plant genes that determine plant performance.
The NPEC facilities are designed to spearhead innovative research in the plant sciences. So we can help provide the scientific breakthroughs required to develop sustainable agronomic solutions to safeguard future food security and mitigate climate change.

The Netherlands Plant Eco-phenotyping Centre (NPEC) is a joint initiative of Wageningen University & Research and Utrecht University. This integrated, national research facility is housed by Wageningen University & Research and Utrecht University and is co-funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

NPEC provides a versatile modular facility that enables Dutch and international scientists, both academic and R&D, to carry out accurate high-throughput plant phenotyping: analyses of plant performance in relation to relevant biotic and abiotic factors across a range of scales, from molecule to crop, from nm to km.

NPEC is currently under construction with the first equipment already installed and available to early access users.
