The world is becoming urbanized. People are moving from rural to urban centers at a rate of 1.3 million per week. 65% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Capturing timely, relevant and actionable data about the urban environment is crucial for cities to keep functioning. To meet this need, Univrses is developing a game-changing platform called 3DAI City.
Urban farming in cities is an alternative, innovative method that can replace conventional agriculture. This project is focusing on the solution that a company called Grönska Stadsodling developed a system for vertical farming in Huddinge, Stockholm. The project is Europe’s largest indoor vertical farm.
