duration 2 weeks

Important information
We aim for a Summer School onsite. However if this is not possible due to corona outbreak regulations we will organize an online edition, with reduced course fee (€ 1570.- for the industry and € 1270.- for academia (PhD students)). This decision will be made on 1 June 2021. Directly after this date all registered will be informed and asked to reconfirm their registration.

Wageningen University & Research is the “knowledge heart” of the Dutch Greenhouse Horticulture, which is the most advanced and productive in the world. Scientists of Wageningen University & Research will share their unique knowledge with international students and researchers during this “Summer School”.

After a general introduction on Greenhouse Horticulture and a cursory review of important topics, we will explore crop, climate and root zone management in more detail, in a varied and attractive mix of lectures, practical case work, company visits and seminars by relevant actors and experts.

Liesbeth Vallinga, Programme manager

Target group

This excellent and intensive Summer School is meant for MSc and PhD students, post-docs, junior scientists and professionals working in the field from all over the world. Particular attention has been given to develop a program that relates to and is interesting for protected cultivation with less technology than is usual in The Netherlands. So, basics will be learned to apply directly in your own country/situation.

Course aim

After successfully attending the Summer School, you will:
• know the most relevant processes in protected cultivation ranging from plant physiology to economics
• understand how technology affects climate management, crop production and resource use efficiency
• be able to apply this knowledge to quantitatively address decisions about climate management, crop cultivation and nutrition
