Campus development is becoming increasingly important in the knowledge society of the 21st century as campus spaces offer attractive environments not only for academic education and conventional research but also for interaction with society and transdisciplinary research.
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.
The theme of Urban Health at SLU encompasses highly important and society relevant research topics. SLU Urban Futures's Alnarp Hub wants to initiate and strengthen SLU’s Urban Health expertise and develop its network.
