The fundamental research at Wageningen University is conducted by chair groups. Each chair group, under leadership of a professor, has its own area of expertise. All chair groups share a common research domain: healthy food and living environment. Wageningen University is comprised of one faculty that is divided into five departments.
The Research Institutes of Wageningen UR carry out application-oriented and field-based research. They are commissioned by the government, commercial businesses and non-profit organisations. On a research project there is often collaboration between several institutes. Collaboration is often also sought with the university and/or national or international partners.
Wageningen UR supports the government in the implementation of laws and regulations that are needed for safe food and healthy animals, and to guarantee a sustainable environment. This is set out in an agreement called the ‘WOT statute’.
