Development and Innovation
We aim to be a model of sustainable rural development, sustainable food supply and sustainable interaction between urban and rural. By running several development projects we work as support and dialogue partner for the growth and development of the green industries.

Many of our projects are about testing and introducing new techniques and working methods, such as our test environment producing biogas straight from a farm. We also run projects that develop the education in farming, forestry and agriculture or contributes to a more sustainable future by growing new sources of protein.

Our schools provide unique possibilities to test new techniques, new crops or new ways of working. They also make it possible to learn more about animals, environments or educational methods. Our test environments are open even for external organizations.

We work in close collaboration with research institutes, educational institutes and branches of trade like RISE, SLU, Vinnova, Chalmers Institute of Technology and Agroväst among others.

New Techniques
We strive to be a model of rural development by testing and implementing new techniques and tools. All our schools have a center for simulation-based education, were students can learn how to handle a machine, a vehicle or even a horse by using a simulator. We are also part of a project were we test, develop and improve new techniques to make them more available on the market.

Sustainable Food Supply
To create sustainable ways of producing and delivering food we run projects both in developing new protein crops, creating smarter livestock farmers and studying its journey from farm to fork.

International Work
By learning from others in our fields of expertise, we can improve both working methods and ways of learning. We are a part of several EU projects were we together with other regions develop new techniques, new educational methods and smarter food chains.

Climate and Energy Supply
The future in agriculture and forestry acquires more climate friendly techniques and solutions. We contribute to the challenge by developing smarter ways of using electricity, testing new energy sources, implementing small-scale biogas plants and by providing test environments were new climate smart solutions can be tested.
