SLU's internal global network

Last changed: 25 May 2020

Are you interested in collaboration with low-income countries? Are you employed or a PhD student at SLU? Then you should join our internal network!

The network is open for all staff and PhD students at SLU who are involved or interested in collaboration with low-income countries. The network started in spring 2019 and is coordinated by SLU Global. 

Our hopes are to increase the contact between employees and to promote internal collaboration and multidisciplinarity.

We have meetings with seminars, workshops and possibilities to find new collaboration opportunities. We share mutual information on a digital platform, Canvas. 

In addition, PhD students have a specific sub-network. Hence as a PhD student you are welcome to join both networks. We invite all PhD students who are involved in projects with low-income countries. Also PhD students who are in Sweden for shorter periods are warmly welcome. News article about the first PhD meeting on 12 February 2019.
