Outreach is an important aspect of our work. Beyond education and research, universities shall also cooperate with the society around them.
Our outreach spans the whole range of our research areas and by being host department of the Centre for Sea and Society we are also closely connected to research within finance, social science and humanities. This gives us a unique interdisciplinary profile.
Our cooperation with the Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment, the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management and the Water authorities in Gothenburg gives us a unique connection to other authorities, and the Maritime Cluster of West Sweden brings us a place to meet with the trade and industry. Altogether the Department becomes an important node in a complete network of marine research, education, development and innovation.
