Stichting Wageningen Research
Stichting Wageningen Research (WR) is the Dutch organisation for agricultural research which, together with Wageningen University, forms the Wageningen University and Research Centre. WR consists of a number of private not-for-profit research institutes that work in different domains and agricultural sub-sectors. WR has a strong track record in multidisciplinary projects and has been involved in hundreds of FP6, FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects, as well as many other large national and international research projects.
The WR institute involved in AgriLink is Praktijkonderzoek Akkerbouw, Groene Ruimte en Vollegrondsgroenten (Applied Arable and Vegetable Research). This group operates throughout the complete agricultural plant production chain addressing all aspects from improving crop performance, sustainable production and entrepreneurship with the goal of transferring scientific knowledge into practice-oriented solutions for farmers and the whole agronomic sector. This includes both leading and developing new approaches for co-innovation with farmer groups, SMEs and other stakeholders.
