MARICE has a unique national position in basic marine chemical ecology research and is also one of the internationally leading nodes within its research area. This was reflected in the result of the Research Evaluation for Development 2010 (RED10) report, where the marine chemical ecology was one of four research areas at Göteborg University that was rated as "outstanding".

Activities within MARICE aim to maintain this leading position in basic research while also using the center as a platform for the development of more applied projects with new partners. In order to create personal meetings between researchers and students across academic disciplines, we focus on different forms of joint activities rather than traditional meetings and conferences.

The center's activities have focused on joint applications and launching of new interdicsiplinary projects. Twice a year, we arrange so called "mini-projects" where different constellations of center participants work intensely with joint research projects during one week. We have also organized postgraduate courses and workshops that have provided the opportunity for personal meetings across traditional academic disciplines.

In doing this, MARICE has contributed to new collaborations between researchers in the Department of Biology and Environmental Sciences and research groups at Chalmers University of Technology, Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Uppsala University, Linnaeus University and several foreign universities.
