Value creation and utilisation of research

The University of Gothenburg contributes to sustainable and knowledge-based societal development, in part through developing innovative, research-based solutions. Often, it is in the interface between academia and other societal actors that ideas arise and solutions are allowed to mature, so that they can create value for society and its citizens.

For sustainable development

Wexsus – West Sweden Nexus for Sustainable Development is a collaborative arena run jointly by Chalmers University of Technology, the University of Gothenburg and University West.
