New research programme for health and welfare services

Other objectives of the programme are to expand study programmes in the field of health and social care and to promote cooperation between the research community, educational institutions, professional practitioners and users of the services.

The programme will be designed to strengthen practice-based research as well as knowledge-based practice and will be established under the auspices of the Research Council of Norway.

“In our budget input to the Government, we recommended more research related to the health and care services. We are pleased this is being followed up,” says Jesper Simonsen, Executive Director of the Division for Science and Health at the Research Council.

“The proportion of elderly in the population is rising, and we need more knowledge about both the health and welfare services per se and about the study programmes in the field. By conducting practice-based research, researchers, educational institutions, professional practitioners and the users themselves can help to create a sound knowledge base,” says Mr Simonsen.
He emphasises the importance of further developing the services and study programmes on a par with future needs.

The Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Health and Care Services will allocate a total of NOK 11 million to the programme.

Part of a larger initiative

The Research Council is seeking more research on the crucial challenges and opportunities that emerge as the proportion of elderly in the population increases, which is why the Research Council has established the high-priority initiative “Healthy and active for many years”.
The new research programme will be a key component of this initiative.
