Research at the School of Health and Welfare

The research at the School of Health and Welfare is multidisciplinary and conducted together with trade and industry, sports associations, regions and municipalities. The goal of the research is to create value and contribute to a good life in an equal and sustainable society.

The research questions are relevant to businesses and society and are related to several of the UN Agenda 2030 sustainability goals. By conducting research together with concerned target groups, the possibility of it becoming useful and making a difference increases – both for those who are immediately affected and for society in general. The research is centred on the University’s two focus areas Health Innovation and Smart Cities and Communities.
