Society

Wageningen UR collaborates with numerous organizations. Our network expands across 100 countries, is made up of more than 3500 organizations and it includes a diverse selection of partners ranging from scientific governmental agencies, academic and business partners, but also NGO's, Civil Society Organisations (CSO’s) and citizens.

Support for civil society organisations

CSO’s play an important role in generating the demand and supply between Wageningen UR and the society-at-large. Some CSO’s consist of small groups of citizens who focus on a specific subject in their immediate environment. These organizations often lack the funds required for good scientific research that provides insight into the problem and possible solutions.

The Science Shop of Wageningen UR supports non-profit organizations by conducting research for them that has a potential societal impact in the fields of nutrition and health, sustainable agriculture, water management, environmental quality, and processes of social change.
