Dream location

State of the art futuristic building Orion and the Wisdom & Wonder Pavilion on Wageningen Campus will be transformed into the teams’ working and living space for 2 days.

We will create a special hall in which the participants have their own “war rooms” with all technical facilities to do their work properly. We have different lecture halls for our keynote speakers and variety of workshops, talks and clinics.
