Development projects link food quality with agriculture.
'Unique that the government invests in this.'
Inge Brouwer, a researcher at the Human Nutrition division: 'In the old days a lot of projects addressed nutrition only. There were then separate projects aiming to increase agricultural production. In AIM we bring agriculture and nutrition together and work to raise the production of healthy food.' An example: promoting healthier vegetables among farmers in East Africa. AIM targets market-oriented solutions. Wageningen UR is going to investigate the scope for implementing the business cases on a larger scale. AIM is attracting a lot of admiration internationally, says Brouwer: 'it is really unique in the world for a government to be investing in this.'
