SLU was actively engaged in bilateral cooperation with Uganda, financed by Sida during 2015-2022. The main focus during the agreement period was on research capacity development.
SLU was involved in one subprogramme on Sustainable intensification of maize–based cropping systems (project number 362) jointly with Makerere, Busitema, Gulu and Kyambogo universities. The postgraduate training takes place mostly at the Ugandan universities but also includes two sandwich PhD students.
