SLU focuses its contribution to Agenda 2030 on six areas that reflect the university’s mission and strengths. All areas are interlinked, and contribute to several SDGs. Central to our research are goal conflicts, trade-offs and synergies inherent in the SDGs and the different dimensions of sustainability: social, economic and environmental.
Welcome to explore our prioritised areas!

Urbanisation, climate change, altered livestock systems and inadequate water management are drivers for evolving health risks from zoonotic diseases, geographic expansion of disease vectors and microbiological and toxicological threats.
