Save the date: Welcome to an inspiring day about interdisciplinary research and education at SLU. During the morning, the thematic groups from Interdisciplinary Adademy 2023–2024 present their projects and experiences of interdisciplinary research.

The Interdisciplinary Academy (IDA) is an initiative aiming to increase knowledge about interdisciplinary working methods throughout SLU. The core of IDA is interdisciplinary research groups that for eight months get the opportunity to develop their ability to work interdisciplinary together and in an inspiring environment. 

The second round of IDA started in autumn 2023 and on 17 September the two theme groups present their respective projects and experiences of interdisciplinary research. This takes place in connection with a full day on the role of interdisciplinary research and education within SLU.
