Further education is an engine of growth. Partly because research and PhD courses often lead to development and new thinking in working life and partly because it provides society with important competence. By collaborating with industry and the public sector the university can develop research and courses that meet the needs of the labour market.
Research and higher education are important pre-requisites for developing and understanding our society. Research leads to a better world and makes life simpler for many people. Research and higher education present new perspectives on knowledge that contributes to a sustainable living environment, people´s health and the development of society. Large areas of research at the university cover people´s living conditions and physical environment.
At the University of Gävle there are two profile areas: Built Environment and Health Promotion in Working Life. Both profile areas include research and PhD courses.
