Science Shop

The Wageningen University & Research Science Shop is in charge of organizing research that is commissioned by non-profit civil society organisations with limited financial means. The goal of the Science Shop is to generate direct societal impact by carrying out bottom-up research and creating new bridges between science and society.

A project starts by listening to the commissioner's proposal, co-creating clear research questions, and reaching out to researchers, students, and other potential stakeholders that could participate in answering these questions, setting up a research project that is monitored and finalized within a specific time frame. The research that is carried out is always linked to an area of expertise of WUR; such as food production and nutrition, health and lifestyle, sustainable agriculture, environmental quality, or processes of social change.​
