Cockatoo Island, 3 November 2016. Multiple Australian horticultural organizations and Wageningen Academy have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The ceremony was attended by Majesty King Willem-Alexander and Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands.

Horticulture Innovation Australia, University of Tasmania, Lincoln University and Wageningen University & research, represented by Janine Luten managing director of Wageningen Academy.

The MoU regards the development of a ‘Masterclass Horticultural Innovation’, with the purpose to support Australian entrepeneurs by the ongoing professionalization of their own businesses and by doing so the development of the Australian horticulture sector in general. Wageningen Academy, as part of Wageningen University & Research will develop the program in close collaboration with the main partner, the University of Tasmania. Last mentioned is responsible for the actual accreditation and training at location.   

This sentiment was echoed by Lincoln University’s Professor Hugh Bigsby, who said: “Our partnership with Wageningen Academy, the professional training section of Wageningen University, is a boost for Lincoln University. The MoU is the beginning of a partnership that will reap tremendous benefits for our university. This will further strengthen our already strong partnership with the University of Tasmania.”
