Urbanfarmlab represents an indoor food production space with different food products growing in the same ecosystem. Food is produced in an ecological way, not using soil, but using e.g aquaponic or aeroponic growing methods.

It will also provide a platform for studying the methods for growing both already existing and totally new food products for local use.

Metropolia Urbanfarmlab provides interesting networking opportunities for all stakeholders involved and it has raised interest for co-operation also amongst research institutes and universities.
