The main objective of GAC is to promote atmospheric and climate science in the Gothenburg region.

The tasks include:
• organizing scientists and PhD students in atmospheric and climate science in a network,
• arrange seminars and workshops in atmospheric and climate science,
• promote cooperation and trans-disciplinary contacts,
• initialize and coordinate research programs,
• create a long-term vision for relevant scientific activities in Gothenburg,
• develop contacts with society, industry and financial supporters

GMV has succeeded in establishing a platform for interdisciplinary research projects and researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg. The GMV research network is the largest gathering of environmental scientists in Sweden comprising more than 400 members from all faculties at both universities and about 300 representatives from industry, local authorities and other environmental organizations.

Together they form an important catalyst for interdisciplinary collaboration in the field of environmental studies and sustainable development.

Seen from a broad environmental perspective, Gothenburg with its many strong research groups and individuals as well as research institutes and other partners is a unique and internationally strong research hub. The Gothenburg Air and Climate network began in 2004 as the Gothenburg Atmospheric Science Centre to coordinate and strengthen resources and activities in the region.

Atmospheric and climate science are trans-disciplinary in character and cover a broad range of environmental, health, social, economic and cultural aspects. Examples of areas of interest are climate change, depletion of the ozone layer, air quality and health and environmental effects caused by air pollutions. To reach a sustainable development the need to continue both basic and applied research is very large.
