SLU Global themes 2012-2019

Last changed: 23 September 2019

SLU Globals’ science-based work is focussing on improving the lives of people in low and middle income countries. Our scientific themes, led by theme leaders, work to promote broader and multidisciplinary research and education cooperation within SLU and with external partners.

The objective with SLU Global’s multidisciplinary themes 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. 

Our theme leaders are researchers responsible for SLU Global’s multidisciplinary themes. The theme leaders are based at their home-departments and work part-time with SLU Global.
