Welcome to the SoilSoc Homesite!
The Nordic Forestry, Veterinary and Agricultural University Network is a platform for efficient and innovative Nordic cooperation, exploring new ways to forge a networking university without boundaries.
The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU)
The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, known generally as SLU, is located in Uppsala just an hour away from Stockholm. SLU has 4 faculties out of which 3 study subjects related to sustainable use of soils. All of them also provide master's programmes in English.
SLU is extremely research-active, as there are less than 1,5 students per employee and the current SoilSoc secretary can be found at SLU.
