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.
