Research and development at SVA is perfomed in close collaboration with both national and international universities, research institutes, organizations and companies. Different kinds of projects are managed at SVA, between individual researchers and research groups as well as projects spanning the entire institute.

One Health Sweden
Most human infections are caused by microorganisms that originates from animals. However, historically science has ben divided into different disciplines depending upon if the agent is found in humans, domestic animals or wild life. One Health Sweden is a network for researchers, working by stimulating interdisciplinary research and increasing knowledge about One Health.
