Wageningen University, part of Wageningen University & Research, is the only university in the Netherlands that specifically focuses on the theme ‘healthy food and living environment’. We do so by working closely together with governments and the business community.
Our research and education are based on a fundamental scientific approach and accordingly strongly geared toward application in practice. This is achieved through the close collaboration between different fields of expertise including both natural and social sciences. This allows Wageningen University to obtain an integrated approach of actual societal themes, such as:
- climate change
- unhealthy lifestyles
- the continued pressure on our natural environment
- animal welfare
