Centre for Soil Ecology

The Centre for Soil Ecology (CSE) is a virtual cooperation between the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) and Wageningen University and Research centre (WUR).

CSE stimulates interactions between scientists of WUR and NIOO-KNAW to bring their soil ecological science to an even higher level, and promote research opportunities for young and talented researchers in soil ecology!

For more information about soil ecology, centre goals, and other information see CSE Background page.
