• Conference Circular@WUR: Living within planetary boundaries

    A transition towards a circular bio-based and climate smart society is the answer to many of the societal challenges we are facing today. Circular systems in the green and in the blue domain will close water, nutrient and carbon cycles and from this, minimize resource losses and climate change effects, and hence assure that society can live within the planetary boundaries.

    Abstracts of keynotes, masterclasses, workshops, sessions and posters are available.

  • International Chain Elongation Conference 2020

    Wageningen University & Research Wageningen organised a two-day scientific symposium on Chain-elongation bioprocesses.

    Chain-elongation bioprocesses are part of the carboxylate or waste-biorefinery platforms. Chain elongation is emerging as a pertinent bioprocess within the Circular Economy to recover resources. Microbial chain-elongation processes allow the conversion of numerous (in)organics feedstocks (from C1 compounds onwards) into a variety of fatty acids or carboxylic acids, alcohols, alkanes, and other biochemicals.

    Abstracts and presentations are available. 

  • Commodity Frontiers

  • Scientific Symposium FAIR Data Sciences for Green Life Sciences

    The Wageningen Data Competence Center – part of Wageningen University and Research – organised a one-day scientific symposium on FAIR Data Science for Green Life Sciences. The symposium focused on state-of-the-art knowledge in data science and data management, new applications in the green life sciences, and insights from other domains that could be transferred. The symposium brought together researchers and domain experts for discussion and exchange of ideas of the latest developments in data science as well as on the best practices within the green life sciences.

    Abstract and presentations of key note speakers and other presenters are available. 

  • Open Data Journal for Agricultural Research

    Open Data Journal for Agricultural Research publishes data sets derived from agricultural research as open data resources with an open license, where agricultural research is here interpreted in the broad sense of research on agricultural systems from plant growth and animal development  to processing of agricultural products into consumer products. Agricultural systems depend on natural systems, hence data sets capturing environmental or spatial resources are crucial for agricultural research.

  • Socio-Environmental Systems Modelling

    SESMO seeks to transform society and socio-environmental decision-making through model-based research that integrates multiple issues, domain expertise and interest groups 

  • Netherlands Journal of Agricultural Science

    The NJAS - Wageningen Journal of Life Sciences, published since 1952, is the quarterly journal of the Royal Netherlands Society for Agricultural Sciences. NJAS is a scientific platform for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research on complex and persistent problems in agricultural production, food and nutrition security and natural resource management. From 2008 to 2020 NJAS is published by Elsevier. Since 2021 NJAS is published by Taylor & Francis Online.
