Seminar: Current and future perspectives on water research at SLU - a seminar for collaborative activities

internal events | seminars, workshops |

Welcome to an online seminar about water! During two half-days, leading scientists working in the field of water at SLU will present their area of expertise and current research, and provide their future perspectives and visions on water research and management.

SLU has a strong competence on water. We cover a broad range of topics. Our research is about water sources, water in forests, water on agricultural land and in rural areas as well as aquaculture, rivers, lakes and the sea.

Our water experts are spread out over faculties, departments and campuses. This seminar hence offers an opportunity to “meet”, engage, interact and learn more about the current and future research strands on water at SLU as a whole. We hope this seminar will increase the collaborative engagement and effort on water at SLU.
