The Center fosters and supports:

  1. interdisciplinary collaboration and convergence between plant breeding/genomics, plant biomass characterization, engineering, and computational sciences to propel UGA into a global leadership position in phenomics and plant robotics;
  2. education and training to provide interdisciplinary experiences that target the need for cross-trained scientists at the interface of plant science and technology;
  3. outreach and partnership building between academia and industry to accelerate technology adoption.
