27/09/2018 – Tubarão, Brazil. Inauguration of UNISUL Solar Hydroponic Greenhouse

 

September 27 @ 14:00 - 17:00 pm

 

In the context of the BRIDGE Executive Management Team (EMT) meeting held in Brazil on September 2018, the BRIDGE team took the opportunity to participate in the inauguration of the UNISUL Solar Hydroponic Greenhouse. This is one of the BRIDGE pilot project, which aims to evaluate a more sustainable production of food through the use of less fresh water and solar power. 

The inauguration meeting was attended by approximately 30 people, including the President of the Santa Catarina State Research and Innovation Funding Agency (FAPESC), Tubarão City Counselors, BRIDGE researchers, UNISUL students and general public. A very special guest was a group from the local primary school ‘Coração Feliz’. They are working in a miniature representation of the UNISUL solar greenhouse, made by primary students of SC for a robotic competition, to produce vegetables in outer space (thinking on a future colonisation or Mars).
