University of Gothenburg


Part of the Centre on Global Migration's mission is to create opportunities to enhance knowledge exchange between external actors and academia.

Our external advisory board includes representatives from local and regional government and authorities, nonprofit organisations and chambers of commerce, mainly from Gothenburg and the region of Västra Götaland. These local connections facilitates cooperation between researchers and the rest of society.

Under the webpage Cooperation, the members of our external advisory board present themselves and their activities regarding migration and integration.

CGM is a member of IMISCOE, the largest European research network on migration, which among other things gives access to international networks and research collaborations

Innovation and Utilization Support at the University of Gothenburg

The Centre on Global Migration can support researchers and facilitate  contact and cooperation with the members of our external reference group. Additionally, the University of Gothenburg's Grants and Innovation Office (FIK) support researchers whose research projects have practical applications to utilize their research. The innovation advisors at FIK guide researchers, teachers or administrators to show how they can develop their knowledge and ideas into concrete solutions to societal problems, and thereby achieve impact outside of academia.

At FIK, innovation advisors work together with research advisors, finance administrators and legal counsel to give as competent and complete a support as possible, from the researchers' individual starting point. Apart from advising on utilisation of research, there is also the possibiity to apply for funding for collaboration or utilisation activities.
