A new call for GROOF projects for all kinds of greenhouses is about to open. In this project, candidates can receive professional coaching in the development of their project.
The European GROOF project was launched in 2017. GROOF stands for Greenhouses to Reduce CO2 on RooFs - but in the next call building, the greenhouse does not necessarily have to be on a rooftop.
"This call will specifically target projects from the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, and Germany. It is open to rooftop and non-rooftop greenhouses, as long as they are working in synergies with a building," the GROOF platform shares.
In its aim to boost the sustainable greenhouses sector, GROOF is offering the candidates an opportunity to receive professional coaching from greenhouse experts. "We aim to foster the development and adoption of a diverse range of integrated greenhouse projects serving different contexts and purposes including the socially-led, commercially-driven, environmental, research, hybrid, etc."
"GROOF’s area of knowledge covers the key components of what could lead to a successful greenhouse integration project. This knowledge has been drawn from the deep experience of the GROOF partners in their areas of expertise, research and through the realisation of 4 rooftop greenhouses and the coaching of a further 10 projects. With GROOF’s expertise and coaching, the candidates will be asking the right questions at the right time, guided by holistic expertise," they conclude.
The group will announce shortly when the call is to be opened.
