New HRM director

Dr Han Swinkels has been appointed interim director of Human Resource Management at Wageningen UR.

He will remain director of the business unit Biobased Products at Agrotechnology & Food Innovations. Swinkels replaces Margaret Zijlstra, who has been appointed interim director of Operations at the International Agricultural Centre (IAC). Zijlstra has been called in by IAC for the reorganisation required in response to its shift in work methods. IAC now does more consultancy work and training on location instead of in Wageningen.
