Strategy

The vision of the Department of Agroecology is to be among the elite of research institutions that work with agroecosystems and to create, develop and transfer ground-breaking knowledge that can promote society's bioeconomy nationally and internationally.

The mission is to be a department that contributes to sustainable agricultural production and growth via excellent research, advice and teaching in agroecosystems.

The strategy for 2016-2020 has a strong focus on how the department will strengthen its competences and increase its visibility internally, nationally, and internationally with the aim of increasing its recruitment of talented scientists and students and improving funding.

The strategy was prepared in the course of 2015 and comprises development of a concept for research flagships that highlight and focus research in agroecology. This is also where we see opportunities for continued funding and growth.
