Together with the EBRD, Rabobank, and the University of Bologna, they will be exploring: 

  • Investment due diligence: what information do investors need to responsibly support sector growth? 
  • Modern commercial urban farming (controlled environment agriculture, vertical farming, and others): where are we now in terms of market maturity? 
  • Business model adaptations: how can the sector achieve sound economics and financial sustainability?
