Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Program, the EDEN ISS project focuses on the “Ground Demonstration of Plant Cultivation Technologies and Operation in Space” and the enhancement of these technologies. The ultimate aim is “Safe Food Production on the International Space Station and Future Space Exploration Vehicles and Planetary Outposts.”
This project entails the development of technologies for the production and regeneration of vital resources, to ensure the sustainability of life during space exploration missions, while also producing spinoffs that will benefit people’s lives down on Earth.
