Be part of the world's greenest and most sustainable university!

Hey game changer, hurry up! Our world is changing radically. We have drastically changed landscapes and the world functioning, not always in a positive way.

The world’s population is growing while the population of the western world is aging. The pressure on land use is increasing, thus giving less environmentally damaging forms of food producing more chance. The climate is changing and fossil fuels become scarcer, which offers the possibility of utilising profitable sustainable alternatives. And there is the growing need for healthy, versatile, adequate and safe food.


We explore solutions for global sustainability challenges. With the power of technology and new frontiers of knowledge we aim to reduce inequality around the world and find sustainable solutions to the challenges that the world is facing. Our mission is to explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life. Curious how our tiny country feeds the world?
