CONFERENCE ON FOOD SECURITY, URBAN AGRICULTURE AND
FEBRUARY 28th – MARCH 2nd 2018
VIENNA Austria: MESSE WIEN Exhibition & Congress Center
How will we feed 10 billion people? Where will food for 400 Megacities be produced? And how can we grow as healthy, sustainably and independently from fossil resources as possible? SKYBERRIES will have impact. We will connect you with leading stakeholders worldwide in the growing Vertical Farming market.
THE VERTICAL FARMING CONFERENCE
SKYBERRIES vertical farming conference presents the state of the art of Vertical Farming and invites all participants to find their position within this future business area. Both conference days will see important basics be presented, current and future challenges of food security discussed and possible solutions outlined and put into action.
SKYBERRIES takes place as part of URBAN FUTURE global conference and thus combines the world’s largest gathering of city-changers with the first conference on Vertical Farming in the German-speaking region. Participants such as architects, mayors, mobility experts and sustainability managers have access to all parts of both conferences and can discuss their ideas with scientists, entrepreneurs and start-ups.
SPEAKERS & PROGRAM
More than 30 high profile speakers will present and discuss the challenges of food security and opportunities offered by Vertical Farming. These presentations will range from the status quo of research in vertical agriculture to science fiction, from sociology to economy, from science to realization. Participants can look forward to insights into realized vertical farms, economical aspects and socio-political dimensions of vertical farming as well as specific insights for their own companies.
Meet Dickson Despommier, Saskia Sassen, Daniel Podmirseg and many more!
We expect contributions by Dickson Despommier („The Vertical Farm“), Penny McBride (The Association for Vertical Farming and Vertical Harvest), Franz Fischler (European Forum Alpbach), Saskia Sassen (Columbia University), Wolfgang Kessling (Transsolar) as well as representatives of the European Space Agency, Siemens and many more.
