Our expertise

Our research aims to develop knowledge and inspire professional practice – where co-created welfare contributes to social innovation and sustainable solutions. We investigate and experiment with how to develop competences central to this work. The objective is to promote healthy conditions of human flourishing, including opportunities for active participation in society – or sustainable social development through co-creation. Hence, we look at how to strengthen democratic participation through social innovation and philosophy of man.
