CITYFOOD Aquaponic Practitioners Research
The University of Washington, College of Built Environments was awarded a National Science Foundation grant (part of a 29-country initiative). The initiative is responsible for the CITYFOOD project which aims to tackle the challenge of competing resources in urban environments. The initiative calls for research into sustainable applied solutions. The Star Schemers worked to finalize the survey questions, program, and launch the longitudinal CITYFOOD aquaponic practitioners survey. The Star Schemers developed a business intelligence solution to aid in collection, storage, cleaning and analysis of survey data for reporting. This research is instrumental in discovering innovative solutions to address sustainability issues.
