  • provide insight into opportunities and options for organizing projects and programs in research and education;
  • advocate groundbreaking, substantial, and iconic collaboration for internal and external partners,
  • support and coordinate researchers in their participation in this Alliance,
  • provide information for monitoring progress of the Alliance.
At WUR, you will be based with the Wageningen Data Competence Center, which is supporting and coordinating the efforts of WUR in the areas of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
