The institute has significant international collaborations.
A specific indicator of general scientific quality and esteem is the recognition that the Riddet Institute has received from Wageningen University - arguably the most prestigious and well-founded university for food science and nutrition research within Europe. Research leaders at Wageningen have identified the Riddet Institute as a chosen partner for close collaboration.
We have other major collaborations with:
The University of Shizuoka (Japan)
Kumamoto University (Japan) - the Condensed Matter Research Centre
