PhenoRob Acquires Funding for an International Summer School in Bonn in 2021

Another milestone for PhenoRob and the agricultural research community: Together with two of the leading universities of the world, ETH Zurich in Switzerland and Lincoln University in the UK, PhenoRob will host the International Summer School “Agricultural Robotics” at the University of Bonn from August 23-27, 2021. “We are very happy about the generous funding by the DAAD Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst. The Summer School will be a wonderful opportunity for our Master’s and PhD students to get valuable insights into the excellent research that is being done in PhenoRob”, says Nora Berning, Chief Administrative Officer of the Cluster of Excellence PhenoRob. Over the course of five days, 40 young researchers will have the chance to participate in scientific workshops, discussions, trainings and joint activities led by the Cluster’s researchers. The topics covered in the workshops include Machine Learning, Graph-based Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), Robot Perception, Economics of Robotics and Sensing Applications in Agriculture and many more. In light of the excellent line-up, the Cluster is very much looking forward to a productive, informative and memorable week next summer.
