Collaboration and continuous dialogue with stakeholders and the public is the foundation for our research.
We work closely with the agricultural and forestry sectors, extension services, authorities etc. to identify and look for solutions to the most important questions they are facing, to develop research projects and to communicate the results from work we perform. We also deal with questions from schools and the public about soil science and the sustainable management of soils.
