The Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre aims to link science and society around biodiversity and enhance and accelerate biodiversity research.

The GGBC has a global outlook, extending well beyond the borders of our home base in Western Sweden. We are a collaborative effort among fourteen partner institutions and hosted at the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at the University of Gothenburg in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The GGBC welcomes two new partner organisations

IVL, the Swedish Environmental Research Institute is Sweden's leading organisation for applied environmental and sustainability research. They are an independent research institute in the fields of the environment and sustainability and work closely with the public and private sector.

The Department of Economy and Society at the University of Gothenburg is the first department at the University to join outside of the Faculty of Science and the reserach performed at the institution falls under the categories; Economic History, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management of Intellectual Assets, and Human Geography.

Meet our newest partners

The welcoming of these two new partners marks the start of a more trans- and interdisciplanry approach to GGBC's endevaour to accelerate and enhance biodiversity knowledge and the actions taken to safegueard it.

We sat down (virtually) with John Munthe and Marie Stenseke, representatives for the new organisations to ask some questions about their organisations and what they expect to contribute with to the centre.
