    Goals / Remit

    WR is part of Wageningen University & research. The strength of Wageningen University & Research lies in its ability to join the forces of specialised research institutes and the university. 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. Collaboration with other parties such as government, business and NGOs is indispensable. This is in line with the Finding Answers Together ambition. Wageningen aims to contribute to tackle the global challenges and SDG's.

    Main EU files targeted

    WR performs Research and innovation activities in Horizon 2020/Horizon Europe and other European programmes, collaboration, capacity, demonstration and consultancy. The research activities of the WUR are contributing to the European Green Deal (with the underlying strategies like Farm2Fork strategy, Biodiversity Strategy, circular economy, zero pollution and digital age), the UN SDG's and the CAP.

    Communication activities

    Wageningen University & Research has been organizing the annual Mansholt lecture in Brussels since 7 years. In the Mansholt lecture we try to challenge the EC and other stakeholders with potential solutions from science for the big societal challenges we face and for the implementation of relevant EU policies in the domain of WUR.
    Furthermore we organize or join meetings, workshops or panel discussions with representatives from EC, EP and other organizations to come up with ideas from science to implement and / or further develop EU policies. So Wageningen University & Research is very active in the Science -policy dialogue.
    Wageningen University & Research is active in several European Research networks (ATF, EPSO, PEER, Foodforce, EFARO, ICA) and public-private networks (European Technology Platforms: European Aquaculture Technology and
    Innovation Platform (EATiP); Farm Animal Breeding & Reproduction Technology Platform (FABRE); ETP for Organic Food & Farming (TP organics); Forest-based Sector TP (FTP); Circular Biobased Europe JU (CBE JU)ETIP Bioenergy / EERA Bioenergy) which organizes communication activities.

  • Meetings


    2 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
