The Field is meant to provide space for informative and innovative projects related to the knowledge fields of Wageningen University & Research, and the mission of Wageningen Campus: 'Gateway to smart food in a green world'.
Here, students, employees or partners of Wageningen University & Research, and companies located on Wageningen Campus, can realize small-scale projects with interactive and educational components that need outside space to demonstrate what’s going on inside the buildings.
The Field is located at the western entrance of the campus. It is the space in between, Vitae, Dijkgraaf and the bus stop.
The spatial design of The Field was on the drawing-board until mid-November 2015 after which the first infrastructure started to be added. The designer was Fiona Morris of Atelier Rabbit.
