Now autumn is here and it is time to start the celebration. SLU turns 40 as a university and in the coming weeks there are many opportunities to take part of our accumulated knowledge. History seminars, employee days and Open campus are some of the events!

The anniversary celebrations are concentrated to our largest locations: Alnarp, Skara, Umeå and Uppsala. But also Aqua in Drottningholm opens their doors. The Doctoral award ceremony will be the grand finale of the celebration.
