From 5th until 8th of Sep 2016 we have attended the COSTFA1305 WG&MC meeting in Den Haag.

As usual, the schedule was very intense and we saw a lot.

The first day we have visited the Plant Research International, Wageningen University in Bleiswijk, where Tycho Vermeulen gave us a tour of the facilities.

We saw impressive high-tech technology for producing vegetables and ornamental plants without soils.

Nonetheless, it is in the Netherlands where it all started. There we also had our meeting on catching up what is new in the Cost action network.

After the presentation at UF, Tycho gave us a tour around his vineyard he set up as an urban social project. We must admit that the idea of having a vineyard in the middle of the city is quite cool.
