SLU Partnerships Alnarp's partners can apply for funding for research and development projects together with researchers at SLU in Alnarp. Applications can be made on 15 February and 15 October each year.

Project applications must be in line with SLU Partnership Alnarp's development areas and overall goals. The mutual benefit for academia, partners and society is a necessity. SLU requires for the results to be published.

The character and size of the projects vary. Projects are usually financed with SEK 100-200,000 per year for 1-2 years from SLU Partnership Alnarp and with at least an equivalent amount from partners.

Funds are granted, among other things, to:
• Research projects focusing on agriculture, gardening and forestry.
• Pre-projects to test an idea and which can then lead to larger project applications from other financiers.
• Additions to existing projects that take advantage of synergies and create added value for both researchers and partners are welcomed.
• Projects that include industrial PhD students and contribute to several added values from a collaboration perspective.
