At Wageningen University & Research, you work daily at improving the quality of life. That is our mission and that is what we stand for. Based on our mission, we focus on the domain of food and living environment.
Our research groups, academics and students do that by focussing on three interrelated core areas: Food, feed and biobased production, natural resources and living environments and Health, society and well-being.
The boundaries of the core areas cannot be sharply delineated. Therefore, the division primarily serves as a detailed description of our sphere of activity. In practice we emphasise the coherence and overlap between the core areas. Many new insights and applications are generated in this overlap; an integrated approach is required to contribute to the major social issues.
