From the start of June 2016 Simon Bush will take over as the Chair of the Environmental Policy Group (ENP) at Wageningen University.

After nearly a year of transition, ENP is happy to announce that Simon Bush will take over from Gert Spaargaren who has been acting as interim chair of ENP.

Simon has been with ENP since receiving his PhD at the University of Sydney (Australia) in 2005. During his time at Wageningen he has been a key figure in developing the university’s research on global fisheries and aquaculture governance.

As the chair of ENP, Simon will lead the development of a wider research vision on social and political transformations across a range of environmental areas, including food, climate, marine, mobility and urban infrastructures. Key to the new vision will be a core emphasis on academic excellence and innovation mixed with public communication and outreach. Realising this plan will also involve developing a new education vision for the group.

The group looks forward to working with Simon on the new agenda, making an exciting future together.
