Support one of the projects

100 trees representing 100 years of WUR. Together we can plant those trees and in this way build a world-wide forest of UniversiTrees. Along these lines the trees will become a lasting and growing reminder of 100 years WUR. The first tree will be planted in Wageningen, the other 99 trees will rise partly in Wageningen, partly in other countries. Build this lasting memory of WUR together with us in the form of a memorial forest by contributing to this project.

Support one of the projects

During her year of anniversary WUR will organize a project for European high school students in order to make youth more enthusiastic for the domain of Food & Agriculture. These future scientists and leaders will be asked for creative and scientifically substantiated solutions to the world food problem. Students that will come up with the greatest ideas are allowed to go to the Global Youth & World Food Prize-event in October 2018. So lend a hand in motivating a new generation of researchers for the benefit of science!

World Wide Wageningen – support alumni

On June 23rd, an unforgettable international alumni day will take place: 100 events in 100 countries. Due to the high travel expenses, not all alumni from rural areas would be able to participate. You can fund the trip of an international alum who will contribute to the organisation in one of the 100 countries, or fund the flight to Wageningen so that selected international alumni can share their experiences and the impact they made. With your donation, you connect all alumni world-wide.

Support one of the projects

Wageningen is ready for the Big Dutch Student Championships (GNSK) taking place in 2018. There is only one thing that is still missing, namely a uniform to unite all participants from Wageningen. Contribute to those new uniforms, so that all our athletes will be able to appear at the start as ‘One Wageningen’.

Support one of the projects

In 1993 a marvellous series of books was published on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of our alma mater. This book was about the origin and development of Wageningen University & Research. In honour of our centennial we would like to make this historiography complete by publishing a book about the past 25 years. Write history and publish a new grandiose jubilee book together with us.

Waarom is het platform in het Nederlands?

We hebben ervoor gekozen om eerst de Nederlandse kant te maken omdat veruit de meeste alumni de Nederlandse nationaliteit hebben. We zijn druk bezig om de Engelse kant te maken zodat ook internationale alumni mee kunnen doen.

Why is the platform in Dutch only?

In May 2017 we will launch the English version of this platform. As most alumni are Dutch, we chose to first launch the Dutch version.
