She says: “For the fourth time in my life I enter Wageningen full of anticipation! First as a student, then as a PhD candidate, later as professor, and now as President of the Executive Board. My passion to be involved in the World Food Problem is as big today as it was in any of the earlier stages. I still believe that scientific research and education play a crucial role in solving this issue.

In the last few weeks I have read a lot about Wageningen UR as an organization and her values. I look forward to meeting and talking to employees, students, and naturally our external partners.”
