Use of shared research facilities

Shared Research Facilities offer access to advanced facilities of Wageningen University & Research. These facilities are accessible to all, including small and large companies, as well as knowledge institutes. For most of the facilities, a user can operate the equipment themselves or with the assistance of a dedicated operator. A few of the facilities can only be operated by WUR staff. Shared Research Facilities apply charges only for the time spent using the facility. The equipment can also be used in research projects carried out with Wageningen University & Research groups.
