One of the primary goals for Gothenburg Centre for Marine Research is to coordinate marine environmental research in Gothenburg. We aim to be a neutral arena that can bring together scientists from different disciplines. By facilitating multidisciplinary meetings and activities we invite researchers and other marine actors to use the centre for knowledge building and transfer.
Marine environmental research at the University of Gothenburg is a productive discipline and involves research groups from many faculties. The research topic covers areas of extremely diverse orientation but is often established from an intradisciplinary perspective. Gothenburg Centre for Marine Research wishes to bridge traditional cluster formations and include the multidisciplinary dimension in an effort to strengthen the position of the university as one of the leading academic institutes within marine research in Europe.
The Västra Götaland Region decided in 2011 to conduct an evaluation of the regional maritime strategy from 2008.
An analysis was therefore initiated, together with Chalmers and University of Gothenburg, in September 2011. The work was presented at a conference in Gothenburg on 8 November 2012, and has been summarized in a report entitled Maritima kluster i Västra Götaland 2012 (in Swedish).
