Dutch Dairy Student Challenge

Dairy is something we are proud of and known for in the Netherlands, but how are we going to transition towards a sustainable dairy industry? What are the challenges we are going to face, and how can these challenges be tackled?

In an inter-disciplinary team of students and in close collaboration with the industry you will be working on the question: ‘How can dairy farms still exist in the future, in a healthy, sustainable and economically feasible way, from the perspective of the animals, the environment, as well as the farmers?’

This challenge is aimed at third-year bachelor and master students from all disciplines in our alliance institutes in Eindhoven, Wageningen and Utrecht.
