WUR council wants more time for advice Marine Research

Rob Ramaker

The WUR council wants more time before it comes out with its advice on the position of Wageningen Marine Research (formerly Imares). The executive board wants to bring Wageningen Marine Research, which is currently independent, under the Animal Sciences Group (ASG).

In view of their common ground, this would be the most suitable place in the organization. At the beginning of July, the board asked the WUR council for its view. Now the WUR council writes in a memo that it is ‘too early for a thorough substantive discussion with the executive board’.  The council wants to consult its constituency first and obtain more information.
