SLU Global works through four themes led by researchers, "theme leaders", to promote broader and multidisciplinary research and education cooperation within SLU and with external partners.

Since the start in 2012, a number of researchers with part-time appointments as theme leaders has been responsible for SLU Global’s multidisciplinary themes. The objective is, as part of SLU Global’s strategic work, to stimulate research, capacity development and education in broader constellations for complex global challenges and for making SLU’s expertise more viable for major international cooperation. Theme leaders are based at their home-departments and thus are part of the objective for SLU Global to distribute efforts and discussion within SLU.

The four present themes are:

Climate adaptation for biobased development
Efficiency in farming systems
Restoration of degraded rural landscapes
Urban and peri-urban farming
