About us

Food and nutrition play a crucial role within Wageningen University & Research.  In 2040 there will be 9 billion people to feed. Food demands will change, emerging economies will require more meat and at the same time certain limited resources such as water and phosphate will have to be managed sustainably. You are what you eat. It’s a saying with lots of meaning, because to a large extent our nutrition determines our health. Researchers from Wageningen University & Research blog about the research done on both subjects and therefore works on a better quality of life.

This blog is an initiative of Wageningen University & Research. Wageningen University & Research is a cooperation between Wageningen University and Stichting DLO. On this platform our employees share stories and knowledge about their work field and we invite you to share your thoughts about the subjects.
