YoungWUR is the organization-wide Young Professionals network of Wageningen University & Research: When I started working at Wageningen University & Research in 2015, I quickly found out that the network had stopped to exist in 2009. Therefore, I decided to revive and reframe YoungWUR to be a networking platform for young professionals throughout the organization of Wageningen University & Research.
On the 6th of October 2016, the Kick-off event of YoungWUR took place, attracting almost 100 young WUR employees!
I organized this kick-off event in collaboration with twelve other young WUR employees from eight different departments, which finally lead to the appointment of a full YoungWUR board on the 1st of January 2017. I will be the chair of this board.
