Campus Connect

Campus Connect brings agri-food professionals together

After two years of Covid-19, Campus Connect Cafe is starting up again! The Café stimulates contact, connection and knowledge transfer between professionals on Wageningen Campus. From researchers to start-ups and from corporates to NGOs, Campus Connect offers short pitches, discussions and networking opportunities around certain themes.

Campus Connect Cafe is organized by the Wageningen Campus Team together with various stakeholders of the campus. Therefore, Campus Connect will take place at various locations on and around campus and will cover a wide range of topics.

Are you an enterprising agri-food professional? Do you want to exchange knowledge with others? Are you curious about the market of tomorrow and do you enjoy receiving inspiration from your professional colleagues? If so, then sign up for the next Campus Connect Cafe.
