Research infrastructure

Providing good conditions for research in order to develop and maintain a high standard requires functional and advanced research infrastructure.

That includes major science parks for materials science, high-technology laboratories for life science and databases for research in humanities, social and political science, and medicine. The University of Gothenburg has medical research facilities within Core Facilities and the Marine infrastructure has laboratories on the island of Tjärnö in the Koster Fiord and at Kristineberg by Gullmarn.

There are also unique databases for languages and democracy which are open to the public. Below, we list the joint university research infrastructure and national research infrastructure.

Research infrastructure at the University

Core Facilites at Sahlgrenska Academy Core Facilities comprises seven units that provide advanced technical infrastructure and expertise for all researchers. Their ambition is to provide high-quality services, tailored to the individual needs of each researcher. The units provide consultation within the latest technologies, experimental design and analysis to ensure the best possible results.

The Marine Infrastructure

The Marine infrastructure provides several research vessels, smaller boats and remote-controlled underwater vessels as well as two of Europe’s most modern marine laboratories. The research stations are located at Kristineberg by Gullmarn and on the island of Tjärnö in the Koster Fiord. Both stations have well-developed systems with seawater flow-through, and laboratories of a high international st
