The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Indoor farming produces fresh crops with minimal food waste, no pesticides, and is close to the consumer. However, indoor farming has a significant energy demand, and it is relatively limited in genetic variation. Understanding the key parameters limiting crop yields under an artificial environment and developing new multidisciplinary tools to cope with the indoor farming challenges are expected to take a major role in the food security challenges of the coming years.
