A new organisation from 2023

Last changed: 26 January 2023

From January 1st 2023 NJV will no longer be a department. Our research and teaching activities will continue as before just within another organisational structure. You will still find us and our animals and fields at our faciltites on campus and on Röbäcksdalen in Umeå.

The new organisation

From 2023 the department will merge with other departments at SLU and you will find our staff under the following new organisations:

  • The research group in Animal Science will be part of the department of Animal Nutririon and Management,
  • The Crop Science research group and the Field Station will be part of the department of Crop Production Ecology, and
  • The Research Dairy Farm will be part of the VH Faculty's animal facility organisation.

Where to find us

The research groups, offices, meeting rooms, lecture rooms and laboratories are located on campus in Umeå. The research station Röbäcksdalen (experimental fields and dairy research barn) is located about 5 km from campus just south of Umeå centre. Both Umeå campus and Röbäcksdalen are about 4 km from Umeå airport. There's a train station (Umeå Östra) and a bus station (NUS) at the hospital, which is a 5 minute walk from SLU campus. There's also a train and a bus station in central Umeå, which are about 3 km from Röbäcksdalen.
