JPFA Training

Since 2010, JPFA, in collaboration with Chiba University, has been organizing various in-depth and practical sessions, including introductory to advanced courses. Our goal is to train next generation experts both in academia and industry towards the future of plant factory with artificial lighting (PFAL)/controlled environment agriculture. Professionals from
academia and industry lead the courses to provide practical framework of concepts and technology in the field.

JPFA Training Course 2020 is currently scheduled for October 8th-10th.
*Due to the rapidly evolving coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, the course schedule might be changed, since
the safety of our attendees is always JPFA's highest priority. Our training website will be updated with details as soon as decisions are made.
