Along with fellow Launchpad colleagues Team Planet (who developed the Mangrove Still), the team is now part of a recently-awarded European Union Horizons 2020 grant for €10 million that aims to demonstrate and test innovations that close water loops, feed the soil, and promote local economies.

The BIOcultivator addresses Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger (#2), Good Health and Well-Being (#3), Sustainable Cities and Communities (#11), Responsible Consumption and Production (#12), and Climate Action (#13).
