Vision 2020 - Our Vision Will Set The Direction

Four basic principles shall guide the University of Gothenburg: Our research, education and cooperation shall be characterised by a quest for high quality; our standpoints and decisions shall be based on a clear responsibility for the development of society; our work shall be guided by a global engagement that constantly reminds us of our role in the world; and an inspiring work environment is an important prerequisite.

All education is research based; as part of their studies, our students are put in contact with active researchers and highly advanced research. The quality of our research and education is strengthened through close contacts with the world around us.

Strong Civic Responsibility

In 2020, researchers from the University of Gothenburg in various disciplines are contributing to solutions of both regional and global problems. Our programme catalogue is very broad, reflecting not only the needs of students and the surrounding world but also our responsibility for lifelong learning and promoting the general level of knowledge in society. We are engaged in close cooperation with the surrounding society, work for sustainable development and are an active and appreciated provider of knowledge.
