EXRS2016 bids you welcome to Gothenburg!

Welcome to Gothenburg, a city on the Swedish west coast at the mouth of Göta river and just inside a marvellous archipelago. Gothenburg was founded in 1621 and through the years has grown to a city with 550 000 inhabitants; the second largest city in Sweden. It encompasses the largest harbour in  Scandinavia with a yearly tonnage of almost 40 million tons. Two universities are situated within the city, University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology with almost 50000 students together. Gothenburg is proud of its new opera house and its concert hall. It has a lively and diverse theatrical, music and exhibitions scene.

For many years Gothenburg and its inhabitants have been actively engaged in issues and activities related to the environment, sustainable development and a sustainable future. The two universities are conducting cutting edge research and education around these issues. Every year, the city of Gothenburg awards a substantial environmental prize and so does Volvo AB. Many of the world’s environmental and sustainability leaders are among the laureates.

Over the years Gothenburg has become a multicultural habitat enriched by immigrants from all parts of the world.

We are sure that having the EXRS conference in Gothenburg will help you to develop positively.
