An interaction platform for research and education


GOTHENBURG CULTURES ON THE TOWN 1621–2021 (GPS400) is a digital collaborative platform for research and education that offers digital solutions, collaborative models, quantitative methods, and site-specific contexts in and about Gothenburg. GPS400 was initiated in 2016 and emanates from the Department of Cultural Sciences (KUV). Today, more than 30 researchers and technicians collaborate with representatives from cultural institutions, authorities, associations, organisations, businesses, and civic society. Thus far, GPS400 has received general funds for collaboration and communication as well as targeted funds for pilot studies and test cases.

Aims and activities

GPS400 works at the intersection between digital innovation, scientific presence in the city, and various forms of archive. The main aim is to identify, test, and present new and sustainable methods for collaboration by analysing, making available, and revising results about cultures, cultural heritage, cultural uses, and cultural environments in Gothenburg during four centuries. The long-term goal is that our innovative methods for digital collaboration and research present freely accessible, generalizable, and empirically verified results about Gothenburg cultures with the help of visually thought-provoking models and mediations that secure accessibility to empirically reliable facts with relevance for contemporary and future challenges. Thus far, the following partners have initiated collaboration with GPS400.
