Agricultural production of crops as a source of food and energy faces enormous challenges: on the one hand, yields must be increased to meet the needs of a growing global population, on the other hand, the available arable land is shrinking, the effects of climate change are already noticeable in many places, and the ecological footprint of crop production must be reduced. Digital technologies such as agrorobotics in particular have the potential to make a significant contribution to overcoming these challenges through optimized observation, analysis and intervention.
The deadline for applications is June 15, 2021.
The PhenoRob Excellentcluster of the University of Bonn is inviting applications for the PhenoRob International Summer School 2021 on “Agricultural Robotics”, which will take place from Tue. 24 to Sat. 28 August, 2021 as a digital event. Advanced master students and early doctoral students (first year) are invited to apply. The summer school will be held in English.
