On the left Aalt Dijkhuizen listens in; on the right director Raoul Bino seems to be inspecting the algae production testing facility. Kamp was briefed on the production of energy and chemicals from algae as part of the biobased economy.
The minister also visited a knowledge market showcasing Wageningen innovations and FrieslandCampina's new R&D laboratory on campus. 'People here succeed in involving entrepreneurs in research,' noted Kamp.
