The Education Project Service is part of the Education Support Centre of Wageningen University & Research. The Education Project Services stimulates and facilitates co-operation between the University and society. The aim is to connect real-life projects to the Bachelor and Master education at Wageningen University.
Through the Education Project Services students get connected to, and can work on, complex issues provided by an external commissioner. This will lead to students sharing their scientific knowledge with a commissioner and in turn it teaches them to look for ideas and information outside their field of expertise.
