2017-09: Funding as part of the programme “Agrarsysteme der Zukunft” (“Agrosystems of the future”) by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for the project “Intelligent vernetzte Mikroagrarsysteme der Zukunft – Stabilisierung eines agro-urbanen Ökosystems” (“Intelligently networked micro agrosystems of the future – Stabilization of an agro-urban ecosystem”; Mikroagrar2050; Grant ID 031B0435) with stakeholders from the Universities of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern, Trier and Augsburg, the Technical Universities of Kaiserslautern, Munich and Dresden and the Fraunhofer Instiute for Building Physics, Stuttgart. The research project involves the design of a four-dimensional urban and intelligent micro-agriculture network for the evidence-based agricultural production through material flow recycling, innovative emerse bioreactor technology and the transformation of sealed surfaces into new agricultural areas.

2017-09: Funding as part of the programme “Agrarsysteme der Zukunft” (“Agrosystems of the future”) by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for the project “Multifunktionaler Poly-Aquaponik-Kreislauf – Ressourcen- und flächeneffiziente Produktion von Lebensmitteln” (“Multifunctional poly-aquaponics cycle – resource- and space-efficient production of foodstuffs”; Aquaployk3; Grant ID 031B0433) with stakeholders from the University of Koblenz-Landau and the SMEs Institut f. Aquakultur & Kreislaufwirtschaft (DU), Senect GmbH & Co KG (Landau), inogram GmbH (Stuttgart) and Steinbeis Institut Tübingen, with the aim to design a multifunctional poly-aquaponics process by efficient coupling of animal and plant process chains with minimal surface consumption.
