    Wagenin­gen UR is a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Wagenin­gen Uni­ver­sity and the DLO foundation.

    ‘To explore the poten­tial of nature to improve the qual­ity of life’

    That is the mis­sion of Wagenin­gen UR (Uni­ver­sity & Research cen­tre). A staff of 6,500 and 10,000 stu­dents from over 100 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 UR lies in its abil­ity to join the forces of spe­cialised research insti­tutes and Wagenin­gen 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.

    The sci­en­tific qual­ity of Wagenin­gen UR is affirmed by the promi­nent posi­tion we occupy in inter­na­tional rank­ings and cita­tion indexes.
