Last week, our Rector Magnificus Martin Kropff visited Japan on invitation of the Japanese National Agricultural Research Organisation NARO and the Japanese minister of Agriculture to share our experiences in public private partnerships such as the one Wageningen has in the top-sector Agrifood. NARO wants to work more closely with Wageningen UR.
As a side event, NARO organised a welcome dinner for Martin Kropff with 8 alumni. Together they enthusiastically looked back at their time in Wageningen and were very much interested in the recent developments in Wageningen. The President of NARO was one of these alumni, having spent two sabbatical periods in Wageningen. They call themselves the Wageningen Family.
