Working towards a better world is a strong driver behind our research. In order to have impact, we need to ask fundamental questions and find out how things work in detail.

Scientists from our research institutes collaborate within five research themes on interdisciplinary societal challenges, often together with external partners.

Collaboration and facilities

The Faculty of Science has an excellent and extensive infrastructure for its research activities, like the new Netherlands Plant Eco-phenotyping Centre and  Electron Microscopy Centre. Many of our facilities are among the top research facilities in Europe and are made available to both internal and external researchers.
