In the spot where horticultural innovation and logistics are the focus – the Venlo region – the Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo works hard to set the themes of food-nutrition-health and logistics on the world stage.
An expertise centre for daylight-free multi-layer cultivation, i.e. city farming. That's BrightBox. By determining the ideal growing formula for a plant – light, air, temperature, nutrition, water and substrate – we achieve the best results for the client.
BrightBox is an initiative of Botany, HAS University of Applied Sciences and Philips Lighting. The Province of Limburg is closely involved with the initiative. The combination of education-knowledge-market means that the collaboration in the field of high-tech horticulture is a showpiece for the campus and unique in the world.
