The current research and other work of Wageningen University & Research in and with Brazil is in the disciplines of food sciences, environment and climate change, nature and biodiversity as well as application of big data and sensor technology in agriculture (precision agriculture). Over the past decade WUR has been able to focus on fundamental research with Brazilian partners thanks to the funding of the European Commission and the Netherlands Science Foundation (NWO) in collaboration with science foundation’s such as FAPESP in Brazil. Applied research has been performed in collaboration with private sector and public agencies.
WUR researchers and scientist are eager to establishing new partnerships to support sustainable rural and urban development and solid and sustainable food systems. We look forward to strengthening our present ties with strategic national and global partners in Brazil.
