Automated agriculture while minimising resources

GrowbutHub – IGLUNA

Who has never dreamed of going to the moon? But have you thought about how you will eat once you get there? The GrowbotHub project by the Légumes Perchés association aims to create a system that will allow the cultivation of fruits and vegetables for the moon.

Description of IGLUNA

On the way to an interplanetary species, students create technology bricks to build up a habitat where life is worth living in.

In the first [email protected] project (2019), student teams across Europe develop modular demonstrators that combined will set the foundation for a living in space.

Ideas of the everyday life find their way out into space and return solutions for a better living on Earth. Brick by brick these technologies will create the cornerstones for a community expanding into space.

[email protected] with its network acts as coordinator providing the institutional link between all parties, system engineering, and IT infrastructure.

Supervised and supported by their university the student teams:

  • materialise their demonstrators
  • establish their local partner and sponsors network
  • interact with other teams
