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.
In that domain, we distinguish three related, partly overlapping core areas: Society and well-being, Food, feed and biobased production and Natural resources and living environment.
The boundaries of the core areas cannot be sharply delineated. The division into three core areas, therefore, 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.
