Current research projects
I’m working as a research engineer on the Lagum Project (FEDER).
Lagum is a Participatory Action Research project on urban agriculture in Brussels whose research object is an experimental and educational garden for vegetable production on the roof. This project is carried out by a consortium associating academic researchers (Laboratory of agroecology - ULB), actors in the field (Refresh XL asbl ) and public administrations (Municipality of Ixelles). The project will be extended to all related actors from the immediate vicinity to the wider food system. Trough multiscale and transdisciplinary approaches, this research project aim to assess the multifunction and the sustainability of Urban Rooftop Farming in Bruxelles.
