When faced with understanding and examining in greater depth solutions to problems related to the environment and sustainable development, it is seldom sufficient to have knowledge derived from one single scientific discipline. What is required is interdisciplinary knowledge with cross-boundary collaboration between departments, faculties and organisations. This was the reason why GMV – a joint organisation run by Chalmers and Gothenburg University – was founded. One of our principal tasks is to create conditions for partnership and dialogue between researchers from different subject areas specialising in the environment and sustainable development, and also between research, industry and the community. This takes place by GMV:
A neutral platform for collaborative projects
GMV acts as a platform for a number of collaborative initiatives, all of which are focused on the environment and sustainable development. They differ in orientation, character and links with GMV and yet they all involve co-operation across faculty, departmental and organisational boundaries. The GMV network has almost 500 researchers, drawn from a wide range of disciplines, each contributing with their specialist know-how and expertise.
