The Welfare Academy

The Welfare Academy is a cross-disciplinary research group interested in the development, organization and governance of welfare services, policy and research.

Our competences range from public health via innovation and management to political science.

Our research focuses on how welfare issues are mobilized, designed, carried out and how they impact society, regardless of combinations of public or private ownership or financing.
