The future platforms and interdisciplinarity
Complex societal challenges require a range of solutions. One of the most important goals for the future platforms, is to develop interdisciplinary working methods at SLU by initiating and enabling collaboration across scientific disciplinary boundaries.
SLU has four interdisciplinary platforms, called Future Platforms, that integrate different scientific fields. The platforms are intended to be a living, interactive interface between academy and society. Another of their main aims is to develop interdisciplinary working methods by coordinating cooperation across disciplinary boundaries.
