The national research programme on working life research will increase our understanding of how we create a well-functioning labour market and sustainable working life. How working life is structured is crucially linked to societal development. Therefore, more knowledge is needed to meet the challenges of globalization, digitization, automation and restructuring. The programme is part of the Swedish Government’s initiative to meet major societal challenges through research and innovation.
Ongoing research within the programme
Funding Currently, 13 research projects and eight postdocs are funded through the programme. Together, they have been granted research funding amounting to SEK 61 million.
