Vertical Farming in a Nordic Context

The Association for Vertical Farming is part of the “Vertical Farming in a Nordic Context” conference in Copenhagen. The conference will gather industry, policy and academic stakeholders with the aim of increasing cooperation and accelerating the development of the vertical farming sector in Scandinavia.

Vertical farming is an innovative way of producing fresh food close to consumers with minimal consumption of water and no use of pesticides. In Nordic countries, the interest for vertical farming is currently growing and new farms are established at an increasing rate. To further strengthen this production form in a Nordic context, the Innovation Network for Bioresources, Food & Bio Cluster Denmark and the University of Copenhagen are hosting a conference on vertical farming on November 13th 2020. At the conference, you will meet speakers with hands-on knowledge, business developers, researchers and authorities. We encourage vertical farmers, the agricultural industry, the scientific community, policymakers, authorities and everyone with an interest in vertical farming to participate in the conference to build networks and share knowledge.

Focus topics at the conference are:

  • Plant nutrients and food quality
  • Light regimes and effects on plant growth and quality
  • Economics of vertical farming
  • Sustainability of vertical farming
  • Legislation and certification
  • Market potential and consumer attitude

The organizers have different options ready if the situation in November does not allow for a conference with physical presence.
