Graduate schools get accreditation again

Three Wageningen graduate schools have been re-accredited by the Research School Accreditation Committee of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).

Two of these are the graduate schools of Production Ecology & Resource Conservation and the Wageningen Institute of Animal Sciences. The third, an inter-university group called Resource Studies for Development, in which Wageningen participates, has also been given the thumbs up again.
Three other graduate schools in Wageningen have been accredited last year for a further six-year period. These are the Mansholt Institute, Experimental Plant Sciences and VLAG. The Research School Accreditation Committee is headed by Louise Fresco.
