Co-operation between SLU, Skogforsk and the Linnaeus University
For the first time, forest research in southern Sweden is gathering around one and the same project. In this unique cross-border research project, efforts are being made to increase the knowledge of how to best manage the forests in southern Sweden. The project is funded by the forestry industry together with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Linnaeus University and Skogforsk. More information about the Partners:

Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre
-The department is part of the Forestry Faculty of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and is located in Alnarp, in southwestern Sweden. The university grounds include the Alnarpsparken which is a green oasis between Malmö and Lund. The Department provides teaching and research in forest science with a focus on management, planning, conservation and forest policy. The Department has an international character both in research and teaching.
-The Department of Forestry and Wood Technology is part of the School of Engineering at Linnaeus University. Each year, about 750 students study either on one of our programmes or on one of our courses. We offer top-of-the-line education for those who work in the private forestry sector as well as for those who are planning a future in the sawmill or wood-manufacturing industry.
Parallel to the basic education, there is also significant research being carried out. The department can be seen as a wood-technology centre, an arena for research relating to the forestry sector and the wood and construction industry.
"Leading the way to sustainable development." That is our vision. Skogforsk is the central research body for the Swedish forestry sector, and is financed jointly by the government and the members.
Our mission is to develop and communicate knowledge, services and products to support even greater sustainability in forestry to benefit the society.
