Skara is SLU's fourth largest campus. The activities at SLU in Skara belong to several of SLU's faculties. In some cases, they belong to a mother institution elsewhere. As a joint function for Skara, there is a site manager with responsibility for coordination and collaboration.

Steadily forward in constant development

Since 2014, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, together with region Västra Götaland, has had joint investments in research, development and skills supply for the green industries. Now the investments and cooperation continue and strengthen with a new agreement that extends until December 31, 2023. For SLU in Skara, this means continued work in three priority areas, now with an even greater focus on innovation and utilization. The initiative is called Tillämpningsklivet 2021-2023 and means:
  • Competitiveness and climate adaptation in beef and lamb production - The application step beef and lamb production.
  • Innovation power and environmental benefits in precision farming.
  • Application leap precision farming.
  • Skills supply and business development in agriculture.

The agreement is based on the Future Projects - the investment in the SLU campus in Skara that the Västra Götaland region initiated in 2014. Future projects are SLU Götala beef and lamb research, Precision farming, SLU RådNu and Fossil-free agriculture.
