Research Agenda for Sustainable Work

During spring 2013, a Swedish national network of occupational safety and health researchers initiated a dialogue with the social partners and was given a start-up grant by the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems/VINNOVA for an advocacy platform on sustainable work as a resource for health, innovation and growth. The aim is to influence sections, policy and calls for proposals in Horizon 2020, as well as to disseminate information about ongoing or forthcoming calls for proposals associated with this theme.

In February 2014 a workshop was held aimed at:

  • Highlighting key research areas applicable to different ”windows” in Horizon 2020
  • Outlining a roadmap for an advocacy strategy on national and European level and a framework for an advocacy platform
  • Identify other EU-funding possibilities for research and implementation of sustainable work

The workshop included invited presentations and comments from researchers, research environments and policymakers and stakeholders in Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.
