Wageningen University

Our research and education are strongly geared toward application in practice. This is achieved through the close cooperation across different study directions and the combination of the natural and social sciences. This allows us to obtain an integrated approach of actual social themes, such as climate change, unhealthy lifestyles, the continued pressure on natural habitats, and the well-being of animals. The world is our working area. Our researchers are active around the globe and our university hosts students from over 100 countries. Inherent to the structure of the university is the amount of personal attention available for students and researchers. Our mission is, ‘To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life.’
