Collaboration on open 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. In order to promote internal cooperation it has been possible to apply for funding support for networks.
