Meeting with employees of Czech University of Life Science in Prague
On July 11th , 19:00, in room E207, Ilia State University will host employees of Czech University of Life Science in Prague.
Speaker : Martin Kulma, Researcher from Czech University of Life Science in Prague.
The topic of the lecture: How can insects feed the world?
Description : The currently increasing world population, with increasing per capita consumption and
dietary habit changes, poses higher demands on the nutritional resources production for both animals
as well as for humans. In the limited and exploited resources, livestock farming is becoming
unsustainable. Production of sufficient high-quality protein with minimalisation of the environmental
footprint has thus become one of major challenges for humans. Insects are considered to be one of
potential alternatives. The presentation will provide both basic and novel information about their
nutritional value as well as about the experimental usage as feed for farm animals.
Speaker : Veronika Tůmová, aquaponics specialist from Czech University of Life Science in Prague
The topic of the lecture: Sustainable food production using aquaponics - current state and future
Description: Nowadays, building aquaponic systems has become trandy because of its advantage
combining hydrophonic and aquaculture systems together. The presentation will provide you
information about the benefits of aquaponic systems. Following questions will be addressed by the
specialist: Can be aquaponics successful way of producing food? What are the main issues? What are
future perspectives of aquaponics?
Location: E207 room, (3/5, Kakutsa Cholokashvili Ave, Tbilisi, Georgia), Ilia State University.
All are welcome to attend the event.
