Upcoming project in sub Sahara countries

Just a short message to convey the good news: Our project proposal on a Horizon Europe call was accepted. The INCiTiS-Food project, lead by TU München and BW Uni, aims to develop low tech hydroponic and aquaponic systems as well as insect production systems in six sub saharan countries. The systems shall be co-designed and built from locally available materials with local inventors and entrepreneurs in living labs. System sizes are going to range from domestic systems to small commercial farms, encouraging self sufficiency and entrepreneurship.
I’m really stoked because I think this 4 year project is going to have a tangible impact. Very much looking forward to starting the project.

Yes, from 19 project applications from other groups, only ours was successful. I am really happy. Our consortium lead at Uni BW and TU München did an amazing job!
