Global Food Challenges

Wageningen University & Research wants to find solutions to the most pressing challenge of our time. Can we feed a growing world population in a healthy and sustainable manner without harming the climate, nature or the environment?

Top scientists describe their ambitions in the campaign ‘Food for Thought, Thought for Food’. They present nine projects that are urgent, innovative and solution-oriented. The projects are part of the themes: increased and more sustainable food production, development of new sources of protein, promotion and knowledge exchange of entrepreneurship in Africa and the continued sustainable supply of phosphates.

In order to realise these ambitions, courage, creativity and money are needed. The Fundraising Committee in collaboration with the Wageningen University Fund has made this their goal. Personal initiative and involvement of the partners is also paramount to this process. We would hereby like to invite you to engage in a discussion with us!
