Extensive research and development is ongoing in Sweden, run by Sweco and the Swedish University of Agriculture under the surveillance of Plantagon management. Most technical work is focused on how to develop smart energy solutions and how to optimize crop volume. Plantagon is selected as one out of 50 famous Swedish innovations to represent Sweden at the World Expo in Shanghai. Plantagon is offered by the Chinese city district Baoshan to build a standalone greenhouse in Shanghai. Plantagon turns down the offer. Plantagon teams up with large listed companies to expand capacity and know how, such as SAAB Technology and Tekniska Verken.
