In science there is an increasing focus on sharing research data and code. The oft-used slogan for data sharing by research institutions and funders is 'as open as possible, as closed as necessary'. WUR has also included this principle in its strategic plan 2019-2022.

Data portal

The research data and data applications that WUR offers are made accessible through the Data Portal. We showcase some inspiring examples of research in the new blog series 'WUR Shares Data'.

WUR shares Data

In 'WUR Shares Data' we talk to current and former WUR researchers, whose datasets are in the spotlight on the portal. For this blog post we interviewed Priska Prasetya and Martin van Ittersum about the Global Yield Gap Atlas. Priska started at WUR in October 2020, as the Business Developer for the Global Yield Gap Atlas. Priska works at the Plant Sciences Group and  collaborates a lot with the Earth Informatics Group. Martin has worked at WUR in various WUR groups since 1988. Martin van Ittersum is a professor at the Plant Production Systems Group and co-leads the Global Yield Atlas project. Read the blog to find out more about this project.
