Philips is developing the perfect blueprint for city farming production at their new GrowWise Center on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. GrowWise stands for a smarter, more sustainable way of growing vegetables for urban populations. It opened its doors on 6 July 2015 on the third floor of Building 7 (HTC7).
This is the largest research facility of its kind with a total growing surface of 234 square meters. Philips researchers will trial a variety of crops under different lighting and climate conditions. Visitors to the High Tech Campus will also be able to taste different crops grown under LED. Potential investors and builders of city farms can visit the facility to see demonstrations of different city farm systems and technologies.
