University of Gothenburg (UGOT)

The University of Gothenburg meets societal challenges with diverse knowledge. 37,000 students and 6,000 employees make the University a large and inspiring place to work and study, with a continuous flow of new knowledge and ideas. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from all around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University of Gothenburg contributes to a better future.

SLC is the largest Swedish marine research infrastructure unit, and is financed by UGOT. SLC has 43 employees at the two field stations in Kristineberg and Tjärnö. Including “resident scientists”, a total of ca.150 people work year-round at SLC. With its excellent lodging (165 berth places) and restaurant facilities, the SLC hosts national and international student courses, summer schools, workshops and conferences. Sweden's only true fjord Gullmarn is easily accessible from Kristineberg and the marine national park Kosterhavet is very close to the Tjärnö. Research focuses on climate change, ocean acidification, microplastics, molecular biology, aquaculture, ecosystem functioning, blue biotechnology, and maritime technologies. SLC provides access to the west coast of Sweden from cold water coral reefs to eel-grass meadows.

UGOT will offer TA and will contribute to all networking work packages and JRA1, JRA4 and JRA5.
