SLU Partnership Alnarp: connecting academia, industry and society

Blix Germundsson, Lisa

Abstract

The intermediary organisation SLU Partnership Alnarp started in 2004 as a collaborative platform at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). The aim was to strengthen the competitiveness of Swedish agriculture and contribute to excellent research and education at the university. Currently, the intermediary organisation has around 90 partner organisations, ranging from small firms to large businesses and authorities, including those in the forestry industry. The activities carried out are R&D projects that are funded together by the university and partner organisations; meeting places such as seminars, workshops, and field excursions; student thesis projects; and mentorship programmes. The main role is to broker networks, connect people with various backgrounds, and initiate collaborations between SLU, industry, and society.
