SLU part of government initiative to develop short courses

Published: 13 February 2024

SLU is one of nine higher education institutions that have been part of a government initiative to develop a range of short courses in the areas of battery, technology and green transition. The courses will be aimed at professionals who want to further their education or change careers.

SLU will receive SEK 2.5 million for this in 2024. The initiative extends over several years, but the allocation of funds for 2025 and beyond has not yet been distributed. Uppsala University is the coordinator for the initiative.

For short courses, the format massive open online courses is well suited because they are short, free of charge and do not require an admission process (flexible start and end dates). Other formats are also possible.

If you are interested in doing a course and wish to have more information, please contact Berçem Johannesson at the Division of Planning. See details below. A short course description must be submitted no later than March 11.

Participating higher education institutions are:
Uppsala University
Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
Lund University
Umeå University
Linköping University
KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Luleå University of Technology
Mälardalen University
Chalmers University of Technology
