The themes on which WUR focus are highly topical. We provide knowledge and expertise in the vast array of topics such as areas of food production, water, biodiversity, climate change, behaviour Food and circular economy. Our knowledge helps governments, business and civil society to face their challenges. We achieve synergy by combining education with fundamental and applied research.
We can attain our national and international ambitions exclusively through powerful partnerships. We seek this collaboration at various levels and with various types of partners: not only universities and research institutes but also government agencies and public bodies, businesses and NGOs.
