The proposed guiding principles

We have come together and created proposals for our premises and the physical environment in Alnarp. These principles act as a guide and platform for attaining the desired results outlined in both overarching and detailed decisions.

Summary of the 2021 spring workshops

Enable progress and collaboration

We facilitate meetings and collaborations by creating the conditions for both planned and spontaneous online and physical gatherings. Food and drink are a great catalyst for taking both internal and external meetings to the next level. Alnarp reflects activities and operations, and makes them accessible. Our workspaces and meeting venues can be easily adapted.

Simplify our workday

Finding your way to campus and navigating our facilities is easy. We use cutting-edge technology to help us with our everyday tasks. Meeting and work spaces can be easily found, booked, and used.

Integrating the outdoors and indoors

Our outdoor and indoor environments are fully integrated and used for various forms of meetings and work. Nature and the environment are our identity, and moving between the indoors and outdoors is simple, regardless of the weather or season.

Stands out

The combination of our history and green identity with modern technology and architecture makes it clear we are at the forefront of development. Alnarp reflects SLU’s contributions to sustainable societal development. Our strengths lie in the contrasts. The impression created by Alnarp makes us appeal to both researchers and students (existing and future), as well as visitors in general.

Workshop results

The group workshops resulted in four proposed principles, which will now be developed. These principles are accompanied by thorough documentation that describes potential ideas and actions. The principles are not set in stone and may be adjusted or expanded on.
