online: The world population will increase to approx. 9-10 billion people in the next few decades. Coupled with the effects of the climate crisis, droughts, storms and the decline in arable land, this leads to major challenges for humanity. Vertical farming should help to cope and provide humanity with food in the future. Different methods enable the cultivation of plants and food without soil and natural sunlight. By adding artificial light, water and nutrients, vertically structured cultivation areas in buildings can be cultivated efficiently, regardless of the weather and all year round. But what challenges and opportunities does this concept really offer?
guided tour: Lab visit with 2 small groups on Friday, June 3rd, once at 10:00 and another small group at 14:00
Important: max 10 people per visit
Vertical farming makes it possible to produce plants on demand - with an optimized CO2 footprint. To do this, various parameters such as temperature, nutrients, irrigation, light and wind must be constantly monitored, coordinated and optimized. This complex task can only be mastered by artificial intelligence. The high-tech vegetable garden can be visited as part of two exclusive tours and in-depth questions can be asked.
