LIFE - Faculty of Life Sciences are working for a healthier and more sustainable future for humans, animals and plants - nationally and internationally. LIFE's research and educational profile is based on a position as interdisciplinary and holistic compared to the chain from farm to fork to health and welfare.

LIFE is working to create value for society. Therefore, both research and education at the faculty of touch with reality, and the focus is on all the time to establish good and strong collaborations with other public institutions and industry.

In all the years it has been essential for LIFE's efforts to improve people's standard of living. LIFE - Faculty of Life Sciences occurred in 2007 when the Royal. Veterinary and Agricultural University merged with the University of Copenhagen. When the Royal. Veterinary and Agricultural University was established in Frederiksberg in 1858, Denmark was plagued by hunger and poverty, and the land was uncultivated. See, inter alia, our 150th anniversary site . Today we are fighting throughout the wealthy part of the world for obesity and lifestyle diseases, and our fields full of crops.

Since 1858 has Frederiksberg Campus served as a framework for internationally oriented students, researchers, employees and companies that have been busy making a difference to our society. And both before and now it has been the focus of how this improvement could be done in a sustainable way.
