SLU Future Food and Cross-disciplinary Research
Cross-disciplinary research is more and more often highlighted as necessary to solve major societal challenges. One of SLU Future Foods' most important goals is to develop cross-disciplinary working methods in the area of "a sustainable food system" 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.
