Open access

HYDRAS is an open access infrastructure, and can be used by universities, research institutions and industrial partners interested in setting-up experiments, to monitor above- and below-ground traits at high temporal and spatial resolution. If required, rainout shelters can be used to simulate periods of drought or to test the effect of different irrigation intensities. As HYDRAS is a data-intensive platform that is accessible to a variety of users, a dedicated cyberinfrastructure has been developed. The cyberinfrastructure implements data processing pipelines and abides by international standards like MIAPPE and the FAIR data principles. This facilitates data sharing and the interpretation of test results, for scientific publications as well as for internal (confidential) projects.

If you are interested in partnering with the HYDRAS team for the development of a research project or have any questions regarding the use of the HYDRAS infrastructure, let's talk!
