‘To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life’ is the mission of Wageningen University & Research. Wageningen University & Research is a collaboration between Wageningen University and the Wageningen Research foundation. Over 6,500 employees and 12,500 students from more than one hundred countries work everywhere around the world in the domain of healthy food and living environment for governments and the business community-at-large.
The strength of Wageningen University & Research lies in its ability to join the forces of specialised research institutes and the university. It also lies in the combined efforts of the various fields of natural and social sciences. This union of expertise leads to scientific breakthroughs that can quickly be put into practice and be incorporated into education. This is the Wageningen Approach.
