E-Conference Virtual Agenda
Day 1 Conference Exhibition - Friday 14th May 2021
Day 2 Conference Exhibition - Friday 4th June 2021
Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is an umbrella term used for many varieties of indoor plant cultivation. This can include something as simple as a DIY greenhouse or as complex as a Biomass Production System. Most generally, however, CEA can be defined as a method of cultivating plants in an enclosed environment, using technology to ensure optimal growing conditions. This edition will look at the strategic context of ongoing, future programmes and developments within CEA, while also delving deep into the core topics of the various methods of growing associated with CEA, capital expenditure (Capex), operational expenditure (Opex), standardisation & interoperability, sustainability,
education, policy, biological processes, energy requirements, digital technology used, and research & innovation in the sector.
CEA 4.0 is focused on increasing collaboration, productivity, efficiency, research, and innovation to support the development of capabilities, best practise, and technology within the indoor farming sector.
