An interaction platform for research and education


In April 2019, the vice-chancellor of the University of Gothenburg installed “GPS400: Centre for Collaborative Visual Research” for a six-year-long period. Within the centre, representatives from four UGOT-faculties and several departments at Chalmers University of Technology undertake collaborative visual research together with archives, libraries, museums, NGOs, commercial partners, and civic society. Together we test, develop, investigate visual prime source material, and disseminate empirically valid knowledge about past, present, and future uses and representations of images with the help of innovative models and methods. The long-term goal is that GPS400 is established as a permanent academic resource for international and interdisciplinary collaborative visual research.



  • Collaboration and digitalization brings the society forward

    [13 Nov 2017] The very first conference within GPS400 (Gothenburg Cultures on the Town 1621-2021) was held on 8-9 November. In the initial panel discussion, one question in particular was discussed: what is collaboration, and how can different institutions act together in order to bring the society forward?

  • Citizen Science - the public becomes experts

    [13 Nov 2017] There are many examples of the public getting involved in research by contributing to archives and databases with their observations, images and other types of information. During the first GPS400 Conference, both local and global projects were noted.
