Cooperation and collaboration

Last changed: 05 February 2024

Below is information on the interaction and cooperation aimed at the development of SLU's environmental monitoring and assessment (EMA).

Dialogue with national authorities

Operations within SLU's EMA are developed in dialogue with national and regional authorities. The contact surfaces are multifaceted and dialogue is ongoing between executives, in reference groups and through individual contacts.

Collaboration with other performers

SLU collaborates with other performers of EMA. For example, SLU is one of four parts in Swedish Environmental Emissions Data (SMED), together with Statistics Sweden (SCB), the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute.

Collaboration on open data

SLU is part of the Geodata Council that consists of actors in the field of geodata. Among other things, the Geodata Council shall provide advice on issues concerning increased coordination between relevant authorities in matters of information development and provision of information, and coordination of infrastructure for the exchange and access to spatial data.

Through the annual innovation competition Hack for Sweden SLU collaborates with other Swedish authorities to enhance and broaden the use of our open data in society. The collaboration also aims to exchange best practices on open data among the participating authorities and to support the development work within the authorities.

Internal cooperation

Internally, the ambition is that there should be a close relationship between SLU's research and EMA, as well as cooperation across departmental and faculty boundaries.
