VHL won't leave Forum before 2014
The accommodation in the Forum has been one of the sensitive issues in the history of the collaboration between the applied sciences university and Wageningen university. Critics thought the rent was too high. Next year the decision will be made as to whether VHL will remain in the Forum after 2013 or move to another site. A decision will also be reached on the continuation of library and IT facilities.
The working group on unscrambling the merger has already severed the links between VHL and Wageningen UR in several areas. Issues such as liability insurance, insurance of buildings and secondment of staff are largely already in hand or have been settled. Collaborations such as the Dairy campus and Wetsus have their own dynamics, says the working group, and can continue undisrupted.
