The Laboratory of Entomology team representing Wageningen University in the Battle of the Universities beat the teams from Leiden and Groningen on Thursday June 1 in an exciting final round. The challenge is an initiative of the national newspaper NRC Handelsblad, the Royal Netherlands Academy for Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and is intended to stimulate efforts to make science accessible to a broad public. The winning team will use the prize money of 100,000 euros to transform Wageningen into a City of Insects in the week of 18 September. / JH
