How to facilitate the development of aquaponics and rooftop farms in France, Wallonia and Flanders?  

We invite the actors of regional planning, public and private developers, administrations in charge of planning and urban projects, to share the obstacles to the development of aquaponics and rooftop farms, and to discuss in order to find together useful levers.  

Panel members:

- Haissam Jijakli, ULiège, Wallonia (moderator and GROOF project)

- Guillaume Dekoninck, l’Echo-Village, Lille

- Ine Petry, INAGRO, West Flanders - Agrotopia

- Camille Herben, Green Surf, Wallonia and Brussels

Getting started with Smart Aquaponics tools: simulation and monitoring  

We invite aquaponics professionals or project leaders to take control of the prototypes of 2 tools developed by Smart Aquaponics partners:
