Welcome to SLU´s press room!

SLU is to a large extent a research university; two thirds of the budget are allocated to research. When it comes to wildlife, soil use, climate issues, bioenergy, landscape architecture, husbandry, forestry, gardening, agriculture or aquaculture, SLU has the expertise. We also monitor and assess the environment.
