In the third webinar of the WUR series, three experts in the field of indoor farming will discuss elements essential to making urban farming work.
Professor Leo Marcelis (WUR) will talk about different indoor farming systems and their applicability. What indoor farming system suits your purposes best and what are the most important factors to consider?
Dr. Hilke Bos-Brouwers (WUR) will introduce the ‘circularity by design’ framework that will help you to come up with a truly sustainable design. Where do you start and what steps do you take next?
Finally, Daniel Podmirseg (VFI) will dive into the topic of energy efficiency. How can you measure and optimize energy consumption of a vertical farm? Daniel will give you some helpful tools to deal with this issue. It promises to be an interesting event and very useful for the design of your concept for the Urban Greenhouse Challenge #3.
