Opening of the Academic Year 2017/18

For science to remain the basis for optimism, it needs to find new ways to interact with society. The exploration of these new ways of interaction was the theme of the opening ceremony of the Academic Year 2017-2018. The British author and member of the House of Lords, Matt Ridley, elaborated on the subject in his keynote speech and three Wageningen scientists reflected on the address.
