      Collaboration with public authorities

      The interaction with authorities takes various forms. In some cases, this involves collaboration through research, whereby the University’s researchers produce results that are then used by the authorities. In other instances, an authority might offer practical training to the University’s students within the framework of their studies.

      We are currently involved in collaborations with:

      Academic anchoring for neutral information

      Collaboration between the University and other authorities is valuable in several different ways.

      “The academic anchoring is essential when mapping forests, and it is necessary if the forest owner is to obtain neutral information”, says Peter Sögaard, who is project manager for Västra Götaland’s forestry programme.

      Indicator to promote biodiversity

      Researchers at the University of Skövde have developed an indicator that shows how good a landscape is at maintaining good biodiversity. The indicator is a tool that provides conservationists in county administrative boards and municipalities with a practical tool that they can use in their work and that has a scientific basis. The indicator can be used to support the process of making decisions concerning the best use of land and natural habitats in a landscape.

      “With this tool, the research can help us to promote and conserve biodiversity – or, better still, to ensure that biodiversity increases”, explains Annie Jonsson from the University of Skövde.
