The regional accounts (Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, China and Europe, considered as home market) have been active in initiating a joint Wageningen University & Research approach towards setting up institutional collaboration with key partner organisations in a number of countries in the regions. Based on their thorough knowledge of the account and their relevant networks, our account managers are optimally suited to facilitate scientists from all parts of Wageningen University & Research. In addition, they help to position Wageningen University & Research in international platforms and collect valuable information that is used to develop and implement the international strategies of Wageningen University & Research. Foremost, however, they develop leads that will assist in increasing our international activities and funding.
The country office in China has been successfully established, and now plays an active role in the identification of opportunities for collaboration and the formulation of projects.
The various institutional accounts continue to play their role in facilitating the interface between important funding agencies (i.e. CGIAR, AGRINATURA and Nuffic) and research, education and training groups within Wageningen University & Research.
