Albert Heijn Collaborates With Naturalis For Research On Biodiversity
Dutch retailer Albert Heijn has announced that it will collaborate with Naturalis Biodiversity Center to facilitate research on biodiversity.
As part of the initiative, the retailer will help a student pursue a PhD on the subject for the next five years in the Leiden-based research centre.
In February of this year, biologist Auke-Florian Hiemstra will start his research on biodiversity, which is a subject of focus for the retailer as well as Naturalis.
'Interested In Biomonitoring'
Research and education director at Naturalis, Maaike van de Kamp-Romijn, said, "Albert Heijn is very interested in biomonitoring. [Albert Heijn] works with regular growers and farmers and is therefore very close to nature in the Netherlands and to the related environment. That way, we can make a difference together."
Most recently, Naturalis inaugurated a new building in Leiden, which houses a museum, and a collection and research centre under one roof.
