Technology is the main driver of competitiveness in urban agriculture. High-tech and data-driven operations of crops production in urban and peri-urban environment demand a whole new set of skills in IT, financial, marketing and human resources management, as well as significant investments in research and development. This brings us to the question – what is the limit of the tech revolution in urban farming?
FAO and EBRD invite you to the third interactive e-dialogue of a nine-part series: "The Role of Technology in Urban Farming", that will take place March 17, 2022, from 2 pm to 3:30 pm CET on the Zoom platform.
Professor Leo Marcelis from Wageningen University & Research will moderate the interactive discussion of participants from all over the world and speakers, high academic representatives and small, medium and large urban farming companies including AeroFarms, LocalGreen and Fluence Bioengineering, on the: importance of technology in the business and how it shaped current urban agriculture settings, financial and human cost of applying technology, the role of banks and investors in the process and what are the key trends that will shape the future of urban agriculture.
