Opening of the Academic Year 2011/12

The year’s theme for the Opening of the Academic Year of Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) was ‘The Golden Triangle: Realising innovations through entrepreneurship and cooperation'

The speakers addressed ‘The Golden Triangle’, the theme of the opening this year, with special emphasis on realising innovations through entrepreneurship and cooperation. Cooperation between government, private industry and knowledge institutes, which is considered to be the important factor behind the success of the Dutch food and agri sector. This innovative sector is the second largest exporter of food and flowers in the world, and produces 10% of the national product, 10% of the employment, 25% of the export and over 50% of the trade surplus, with further growth possible. So, more than justified to be among the nine top sectors that are considered crucial for the Dutch economy and employment.
