Acting for sustainability through knowledge and collaboration

The core task of Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development (GMV) is to create and facilitate cooperation, between and within Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg, with an aim to generate and practically implement knowledge about sustainable development. In order to develop solutions to global challenges, we bring academic disciplines together to create new knowledge. Moreover, practical implementation of knowledge requires collaboration between academia and other actors in society. To this end, we create meeting places and bring together different types of expertise in order to promote sustainable development within research, education and cooperation.

  • Research on polluting chemicals falling behind

    [2 Dec 2021] Only a fraction of all the chemicals used by society have been thoroughly studied by researchers. An analysis covering 20 years of scientific publications related to chemical pollution show that the majority of studies have focused on as few as 65 individual chemicals. Meanwhile, the number of chemicals used by society is rapidly increasing. "We found that the scientific literature was dominated by a surprisingly small group of chemicals while there is very little knowledge about the many of the other chemicals used by society. It is apparent that the research community needs to catch up with current chemical uses and innovations", says Erik Kristiansson, professor at University of Gothenburg/Chalmers and the main author of the study.
