Today marks the climax of a tumultuous year for VHL. Staff at the university of applied sciences have gathered in Zwolle to be consulted about their future.
The entire Executive Board is also present. The Board has said it will be giving its response to the poll of support for the partnership at the start of next week. It will be the Board that takes the final decision. In January around 60 percent of the staff present voted in favour of continuing within Wageningen UR and nearly 40 percent voted against. This included a lot of 'yes, if' and 'no, unless' votes.
