LEB foundation 100 year anniversary

The LEB Foundation stimulates environmental sciences and developments in agriculture by financing the activities of students and young researchers active in agricultural research and environmental sciences at Wageningen UR.
The foundation ‘Fund Agricultural Export Bureau 1916-1918’ was created on 15 June 1918 with the goal ‘to promote agricultural sciences and all related trade in its entirety.’
The past years, the LEB Fund accepted an average of 60 requests per year. These varied from study trip financing for congress participation to organising scientific meetings/courses in the Netherlands. This is a substantial contribution for the development and international exposure of our young scientists.
