Interdisciplinary Research and Education Fund (INREF)

To tackle the world’s pressing development-related societal issues and to support achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, research for development needs to apply much more innovative interdisciplinary and participatory approaches.

To respond to the societal needs for more impact in research for development and to contribute to the development of innovative research approaches, Wageningen University launched the Interdisciplinary Research and Education Fund (INREF) programme in 2000. Much research of Wageningen University & Research (WUR) - and as part of that the INREF programme - is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
