Thematic Working Group Water

There is a great deal of research, teaching and utilisation happening around water as a subject at Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg. Although the researchers and teachers have their connections, an overview of all initiatives has been missing.


The Thematic Working Group Water therefore strives to map all water researchers at the two universities with a focus on Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6), Clean Water and Sanitation, and in particular activities related to sustainable development. This is in accordance with the visions of both universities.

The working group set out to identify connections and collaborations regarding research, teaching and utilisation with partners at the two universities as well as with universities and other partners in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

The mapping will inform water researchers how best to establish connections with partners for ‘inhouse’ collaboration and how to form research consortia for larger applications within the water area, to attract external funding.

Water network

A water network will be launched and when it is established, the next goal is to identify research gaps and the need to seek funding to address them.

The working group will invite all interested parties to a digital seminar in the water area in April 2022 with the purpose of spreading knowledge and experience to a wider group of water researchers. The seminar will also be open to researchers at LMIC partners.
