Institute full name:

Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Department of Soil and Environment

Institute acronym:

SLU

Institute profile:

SLU develops the understanding and sustainable use and management of biological natural resources. This is achieved by research, education and environmental monitoring and assessment, in collaboration with the surrounding community. At the Department of Soil and Environment we study the soil system and how it interacts with different forms of land use. We integrate experimental approaches, both in the field and the laboratory with theoretical approaches and models, both to improve our understanding of the key processes and also to support the development of improved management-oriented decision-support and risk assessment tools and to support policymaking and management at local, national and international level. In education the department offers basic and advanced courses in Soil science, Environmental Science and Biology as well as a 4-years PhD program. The department is in charge of several national environmental monitoring programs and a series of long-term field experiments.
