The University of Gothenburg is the third-oldest of the current Swedish universities and is one of the largest universities in the Nordic countries. Its eight faculties offer training in the Creative Arts, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Humanities, Education, Information Technology, Business, Economics and Law, and Health Sciences.
The Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences (SLC) is the largest Swedish marine research infrastructure unit, and is financed by UGOT. Including “resident scientists”, a total of ca.150 people work year-round at SLC. SLC runs Sweden's ASSEMBLE partnership, and its two marine stations offer the UGOT ASSEMBLE Plus transnational access services: Kristeneberg (KMRS) and Tjärnö (TML).
UGOT will offer transnational acces (TA), and will contribute to all networking work packages and JRA1, JRA4 and JRA5.
