Indoor farming has been rapidly expanding in Australia and represents an amazing opportunity to grow healthy and nutritious food independently of the current and future climate. Over the past few years, food availability in Australia and Worldwide has been challenged by unpredictable weather, global food shortages, and unreliable supply chains.
This workshop organized by the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovations at the University of Queensland brings together all major stakeholders and experts in Indoor farming to evaluate the support needed to accelerate its development.
The overarching goal of the event is to create an understanding of the range of possibilities for Vertical Farming and High-tech Greenhouses for the Australian and Asian-Pacific Markets.
Participants will be given the opportunity to present their work or company or participate in Panel Conversations.
Contributions to this workshop will be further presented in a summary report after the workshop.
