Campus Connect

Campus Connect

Ambitious Agri-food professionals interested in innovation and willing to share their knowledge are welcome to attend Campus Connect, the Wageningen Campus science & innovation café. Every café session has a different theme. A researcher explains about the latest developments and gives a glimpse of the future, a business partner provides an update from the industry and of course our own Agri-food start-ups are also present. This is followed by time to network. The cafés are held in Impulse, the campus debate and meeting centre.

The campus is designed to encourage knowledge organisations, teaching institutions, partners from industry and start-up businesses to meet, share knowledge and become involved with one another. There is a huge diversity of meeting places, both inside the buildings and elsewhere in the campus grounds. Campus Connect is just one of various activities aimed at sharing knowledge. After all, sharing knowledge is just as important as developing it.
