OpenAgri Zoom-In: In-depth look at the Experimentation Lab in Urban Agriculture

Zoom-in
In this first Zoom-In, the UIA Expert Miguel Sousa looked at one of the innovative aspects of the OpenAgri project in Milan, the Experimentation Laboratory in Urban Agriculture.

The Lab is primarily set to promote innovative techniques and approaches in peri-urban agriculture, educational and training initiatives and awareness campaigns, with the goal to create new job opportunities and to revitalise a fringe area of

the City of Milan. This Zoom-In looks more specifically at the process of finding and selecting the innovative projects, agriculture entrepreneurs, companies and/or startups and other organized parties to be part of this innovation hub. 

The UIA will publish a collection of Zoom-In’s from its funded projects annually in a variety of formats including: articles, interviews, videos or infographics. Zoom-Ins are an in-depth look into a specific part of the project allowing us to deepen the knowledge generated by the project concerning the solutions designed and implemented. It provides further information on how to overcome the main challenges related to the experimentation of innovative projects in a real urban setting.
