SLU Invests in Extension Lecturers

SLU (the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) has appointed its the first eleven (of totally eighteen) Senior Research Lecturers–Extension Specialists. The eleven are all lecturers in their scientific fields, but now also have extension tasks.

“This is a unique venture where cooperation is in focus”, says Johan Schnürer, assistant vice-chancellor for cooperation at SLU. “The extension specialists are active in research and have a base in science. But they are also chosen for their abilities to develop a dialogue with the surrounding society.”

SLU actively invests in developing cooperation with the surrounding society. The ambition is to both be of benefit to the development of knowledge among SLU´s stakeholders as well as society at large. The lecturers will also function as ambassadors of SLU externally and they have knowledge and an interest in SLU´s activities within the field of biological natural resources.
