Research in Dronten: Sustainable entrepreneurship

‘Duurzaam ondernemen’, or Sustainable entrepreneurship, enables us to work towards responsible entrepreneurship and sustainable business development in agrifood and agriculture. In other words: a more sustainable way of producing food. On the whole,  current production methods have had a negative impact on animal welfare and our own environment. We use too many resources and the returns for businesses are under pressure.

In the research programme ‘Duurzaam ondernemen’, we carry out research to bring about innovation, in order to make agrifood and agriculture sustainable. Research is carried out in the form of lectureship assignments, practical research, thesis research and internships.
