During the two day program there will be four experts talking about four different topics:: food :: technology :: business :: society. These experts will provide insights from their professional occupation. Furthermore, they will elaborate on the development and future of the industry behind the vertical farm.“
Was erwartet die TeilnehmerInnen?
„The participants of the SKYBERRIES Academy are a blend of people with different professional backgrounds.The architect will meet the LED-expert, the city planner will interact with the botany expert, and the marketing student will talk with the agricultural engineer. It is in our conviction that the people from different disciplines need to meet and start a dialogue in order to find serious solutions to produce food in the future.
Additionally the program allows for interaction between the representatives from our partnering organizations and the participants who acquired a ticket. We believe that establishing these bonds will mean the fulfillment of much synergy potential.
The SKYBERRIES Academy takes place in an environment that draws people out of the rhythm of their daily lives. It will be located in an area that has little distractions in order to ensure that participants will stay focused and engaged. This means that it will be in a more rustic environment located somewhere close by Vienna. Furthermore, we want to provide a comfortable experience and therefore the accommodation will have a somewhat luxurious character.“
