Research group: Worklife and Inclusion (WIN)

The research group Worklife and Inclusion (WIN) seeks to integrate health- and social science in a way that is useful for the individual as well as the society. We seek to produce relevant knowledge that contributes to healthy, active lives in a society that has room for everyone.

Our main research areas include:

  1. Work participation among young people not in school or education (NEET), and people with different health complaints, physical disabilities, or with a cultural minority background.
  2. Social inequality in health and participation in society
  3. Inclusion and exclusion
  4. Evaluation of vocation rehabilitation programs, such as Individual Placement and Support (IPS)
  5. Individual follow-up and coordination of people on sick-leave.
  6. The effect of physical activity on sickness absence and work capacity.

In order to sustain the welfare state, we have to enable work participation for more people in the work-capable age-range. By investigating the effect of vocational rehabilitation efforts through systematic evaluations, we seek to contribute to a working life that has room for all. The aim is that the knowledge we produce can inform political decisions regarding health and work participation.
