Overview

SLU is a university with comprehensive knowledge of the sustainable use of biological natural resources, as well as of the environmental and life sciences. Our activities span from genes and molecules to biodiversity, animal health, bioenergy and food supply. Urban and regional planning, sustainable urban and rural development and global issues such as climate change are also on the agenda. To summarise, our work is about how we can use biological natural resources from forests, soil and water without exhausting them and while preserving welfare for humans and animals alike. This is the fundamental principle that permeates the education, research and environmental monitoring and assessment at SLU. SLU’s knowledge is sought-after both by decision-makers and by the green sector (agriculture, forestry, fisheries etc.). Mission statement: SLU develops the understanding and sustainable use and management of biological natural resources. This is achieved by research, education and environmental monitoring and assessment, in collaboration with the surrounding community. Vision: SLU is a world-class university in the fields of life and environmental sciences.
