Wageningen University & Research is the “knowledge heart” of the Dutch Greenhouse Horticulture, which is the most advanced and productive in the world. Scientists of Wageningen University & Research will share their unique knowledge with international students and researchers during this “Summer School”. This summer, 2020 the programme will be offered as online edition.
Why join this online Summer School?
After successfully attending the Summer School, you will:
- Know the most relevant processes in protected cultivation ranging from plant physiology to economics.
- Understand how technology affects climate management, crop production and resource use efficiency.
- Be able to apply this knowledge to quantitatively address decisions about climate management, crop cultivation and nutrition.
For whom is this online Summer School?
This excellent and intensive online Summer School is meant for PhD students, post-docs, junior scientists and professionals working in the field from all over the world. Particular attention has been given to develop a programme that relates to and is interesting for protected cultivation with less technology than is usual in The Netherlands. So, basics will be learned to apply directly in your own country/situation.
Programme and topics
After a general introduction on Greenhouse Horticulture and a cursory review of important topics, we will explore crop, climate and root zone management in more detail, in a varied and attractive mix of lectures, practical case work and seminars by relevant actors and experts.
Summer School leaders
The course leaders are Dr. C. (Cecilia) Stanghellini and Ing. E. A. (Erik) van Os, both Wageningen Plant Research as well as Prof. dr. ir. L. F. M. (Leo) Marcelis and Dr. ir. E. (Ep) Heuvelink, both Wageningen University, Department of Plant Sciences.
