Mission To explore the potential of nature to improve the quality of life . That is the mission of Wageningen UR (University & Research centre). A staff of 6,500 and 10,000 students from over 100 countries work everywhere around the world in the domain of healthy food and living environment for governments and the business community-at-large. The strength of Wageningen UR lies in its ability to join the forces of specialised research institutes, Wageningen University and Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences. It also lies in the combined efforts of the various fields of natural and social sciences. This union of expertise leads to scientific breakthroughs that can quickly be put into practice and be incorporated into education. This is the Wageningen Approach. The domain of Wageningen UR consists of three related core areas: Food and food production Living environment Health, lifestyle and livelihood Wageningen UR has branches all over The Netherlands (and in China and Brazil, by the way).
