SLU Urban Futures supports co-creation of new knowledge in urban sustainability research to address complex societal challenges. As part of its capacity-building mission, it initiated and supports Methods Labs focused on transdisciplinary collaboration.

Futures Lab

A forum for interdisciplinary explorations of future research questions and societal challenges.

Criticality Lab

The Criticality Lab mobilises discursive formats in education to strengthen SLU’s urban research and to profile SLU as a partner in tackling the challenges of the urbanising planet.

Synthesis Lab

The Synthesis Lab operates as a hub for methodological experiments in synthesis-driven knowledge generation.

Living Lab Campus

Campus Alnarp has a long tradition of using the outdoors for testbeds, trial areas and landscape laboratories. In the autumn of 2022 a new doctoral project in Alnarp will explore the possibilities of using the landscapes of the university even further.
