Dr. Bernard de Geus has been appointed Director of the Breed4Food consortium. As from 1 June 2013, he will lead the research consortium which is a collaborative effort comprising four animal breeding companies and Wageningen UR. Breed4Food was recently established in response to topsector policy of the Dutch government. Breed4Food aims to develop animal breeding tools and technologies for a more efficient and sustainable manner of securing the food for the growing world population.
Dr. De Geus is enthusiastic about this new challenge: “The Breed4Food consortium comprises five partners, all successful in the animal breeding world. I believe this consortium will be a trendsetter – both at national and international levels – and capable of achieving convincing results.
