SLU works with everything that grows, whether it is plants that provide us with food, give us income, or are just there to be beautiful.
The knowledge that we supply is essential to enable us to utilize our forests, our landscapes, our soil and our animals in a sustainable way.
This sustainable use will allow us to develop, and will also guarantee a good quality of life for our children and grandchildren.
Research and education for life
Research and education at our university spans the range from genes and molecules to biological diversity, animal health, sustainable forestry and food supply – and all in a healthy environment. We are also concerned with global phenomena such as the global warming.
A comprehensive view, interdisciplinary studies and applicability are the ethos of SLU’s research and education, and in our contacts with industry and society.
