Purpose and goal

Researchers´ skills and results are rarely used in the municipalities´ work, and the researchers rarely participate directly in the municipalities´ work. In this project, planning researcher Anders Larsson will participate in the work of the Staffanstorp municipality´s new comprehensive plan, which means that Anders works with the municipality at various stages in process. Specific areas where Staffanstorp needs input and where Anders Larsson has competence are e.g. densification, public participation, mobility and blue-green planning.

Expected results and effects

For SLU´s part, the experiences of individual mobility will result in interesting input for future research projects. Both parties expect the project to inspire future joint research applications. Staffanstorp has expressed its willingness to invest more in water issues, and we hope to involve the municipality in a future application focusing on stormwater treatment. As Anders is the course manager for a number of courses, the collaboration will also provide inspiration for teaching.

Planned approach and implementation

Examples of activities: Spring 2018: Attend meetings in the municipality and respond to the ÖP work as well as lecture on densification issues and protection of agricultural land. Autumn 2018: Incorporate experiences in teaching (such as the HSU program), lecture on e.g. sustainability issues and water treatment and contribute to the chapter on stormwater treatment in the comprenesive plan. Spring 2019: Participate in consultation meetings on the new comprehensive plan as external expert as well as contribute to the traffic and mobility plan.
