Organisation and Governance | WEXSUS

Organisation and Governance

'Nexus' means connection and that is exactly what Wexsus is set to do – create relationships and exchange knowledge between actors from all sectors of society. Organisationally, we are rooted in academia, but in our work, we welcome everyone.


Wexsus is a consortium consisting of the owners Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg and University West. The highest decision-making body is Wexsus general meeting, which consists of the three rectors.


Region Västra Götaland is co-founding partner of Wexsus. As a co-founding partner Region Västra Götaland is part of Wexsus' steering group together with the three owner universities. In addition to the agreement with Region Västra Götaland, other agreements with associated partners of Wexsus are in the pipeline to further strengthen collaboration for a sustainable transition. Actors in other sectors of society, such as the business sector and the non-profit sector, will also be given the opportunity to enter various forms of partnerships.
