Partnering opportunity

Latvian horticulture vocational high school is looking for technologies for diagnostics of plant diseases by hyperspectral imaging


A horticulture vocational high school from Latvia is developing an autonomous robotic platform prototype with integrated modules of cameras and sensors, equipment and software for plant growth monitoring. The high school is looking for partners with know-how in detection and diagnosis of plant diseases by using hyperspectral cameras. The school is interested to enter into technical cooperation agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Research institution or company with know-how and expertise in detection and identification of plant diseases by using hyperspectral imaging.

Partner sought

Type of partner sought – university, research organization, company etc. with know-how and experience in plant disease diagnosis using hyperspectral camera. Role of partner sought – supply of technology and know-how for identification of plant diseases using hyperspectral imaging.


More and more sophisticated technologies and automation are applied to horticultural field. A horticulture vocational high school from Latvia is presently working on innovative horticulture project - development of the autonomous robotic platform, that will ensure plant monitoring and tending functions as well as automation and digitalization of the production process. The prototype of the robotic platform includes integrated modules of cameras, sensors, equipment and software. The application of different types of sensors and multispectral camera ensures real-time plant data collection, compilation and analyzation in the outdoor environment. The multispectral cameras and sensors are embedded in the autonomous mobile robotic system (Fig.1), that is moving around the garden (Fig.2) to gather information about plant growth, biomass, plant height, leaf area index, light penetration, colour & spectral analysis, vegetation indices, pests and other features. Afterwards an artificial intelligence solution will be developed to assist in the decision making of appropriate technological processes. The plants’ characteristics include information on plants’ growth at different stages of development, diseases, etc. They will be used for research purposes and optimisation of cultivation technologies. At the moment the robotic prototype lacks a system for detection of plant diseases. The detection and identification of plant diseases is a fundamental task in sustainable plant production. An accurate estimate of disease incidence, disease severity and negative effects on quality and quantity is important for horticulture and plant breeding. To supplement the robotic platform with a system of plant disease identification the vocation high school is looking for partners with experience in plant disease diagnosis using hyperspectral cameras. The school is seeking for technical cooperation agreement.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
