The August T Larsson Guest Researcher Programme
The aim of the programme is to promote exciting and imortant research collaborations by inviting guest researchers from all over the world to enrich and be enriched by the activities at the faculty and SLU.
The August Teodor Larsson Foundation was founded on 14 January 1956 "for lasting promotion of scientific research in the field of agriculture". In 2004 the Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences was given the right to receive the annual income from the Foundation, and on 13 April 2011 decided to establish a national and international researcher exchange programme.
The purpose of the August T. Larsson Foundation Guest Researcher initiative is to engage guest researchers within strategically important and prioritised fields at the Faculty. The aim of the program is not only to strengthen research, education and/or environmental monitoring and assessment but also to expand the university's interface with other research environments.
The programme enables guest researchers to spend short periods at the faculty (one month per term) over a period of three years. Guest researchers will receive funding to cover their salary, travel expenses and accommodations, as well as for journeys between SLU's regional centres and for a fellow member of their team to visit SLU ("tag-along"). For specific information about the programme, see this page.
