DART-Europe is a new web portal that digitally offers all dissertations from European universities. For researchers and other interested individuals, DART-Europe is the starting point for easy searching for and finding online dissertations from European universities.

Currently, 354 305 dissertations from 516 universities from 27 countries are available. Wageningen UR is well represented in the portal, and with 5 002 available dissertations, the portal's largest supplier of dissertations. A notable detail is that the most downloaded dissertation in the last 7 years is a 1993 dissertation from Wageningen Agricultural University: Nijman, Ch. (1993) A management perspective on the performance of the irrigation subsector.

The portal was developed by the LIBER Access Division in cooperation with a collaboration between the national repositories for scientific information (e.g., the Dutch portal Narcis) and the libraries of university institutions.
