Unlocking the Future of Sustainable Agriculture: A Webinar Series on Aquaponics, Aquaculture, and Hydroponics

Given the growing challenges related to global food insecurity and the urgent need to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2.1 and 2.2, which aim to ensure universal access to safe, nutritious food throughout the year, innovative agricultural solutions are more important than ever before (FAO, 2018).

In this context, hydroponics, bioponics, and aquaponics have emerged as transformative technologies with the potential to revolutionise food production. These technologies are gaining popularity and can help address food security concerns in different regions. Regions struggling with water scarcity and limited arable land face challenges.

To support this shift, we are proudly announcing a webinar series in partnership with the DOLORES project, the European Engineering Learning Innovation and Science Alliance (EELISA) and the INCiTiS-FOOD project.

The goal of these webinars is to provide capacity building for soilless technologies such as aquaponics, hydroponics, and bioponics. Participants will have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of these innovative systems, their practical applications, and their potential to address the complex challenges of global food security.
