JPFA launches International Symposium on Plant Factory

Toward a sustainable future. The JPFA aims for open discussion and international co-creation on various issues during the International Symposium on Plant Factory held on September 4-5 in Chiba, Japan, at the Kashiwanoha Conference Center.

Issues that will be addressed are utilization, roles, technological challenges, and direction of plant factories with artificial lighting (PFALs) that possess diverse purposes and applications. Additionally, there is potential for the use of PFALs in social activities as part of the global ecosystem and in creating varied and flexible food and plant production systems.

These topics will be covered through open discussions and international collaboration at smart city Kashiwa-no-ha, with a view to achieving “staying healthy simply by living.”

The symposium will be held in person at the Kashiwanoha Conference Center and online through the event app.
