Our research shall make a difference
The basis of our research is that it will be implemented and used, and we therefore work across disciplines and in close cooperation with the rest of society. We want to promote health and well-being and make our society more gender equal and inclusive. We need to create decent working conditions, but also reduce the inequality that exists in society to create conditions for good health for all.
Health promotion work is an important part of creating long-term sustainability for all. It is directed at working life, but it is broader than that and concerns everything from the living situation of our elderly to people who are excluded.
We focus on research that addresses concrete problems and provides direct benefit to society. We develop knowledge of health promotion measures for the private individual, the organisation and society in general. It is our collaboration with organisations and society that means that the research will be put to direct use.
