After almost seven years at HUV (this time), I will end my employment at SLU in mid-March. As you probably know, the assignment as head of department is limited in time, and my second term expires in June. Ewa will therefore be acting head of department from mid-March until the end of June.

As it is a new term of office for all heads of department at SLU from July 1st 2022, all departments at the VH Faculty will have an election (or re-election) for a head of their departments during the spring. At HUV, Johan Karlsson will be responsible for the process.

I myself will start working at KSLA (The Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry) in the beginning of April and I am really looking forward to continuing working with interesting and important questions! However, there are still several months before I quit, so we have plenty of time to meet before that!


Sara Österman, Head of Department
