Participation, communality and wellbeing

A multidisciplinary focus area of the University Consortium

Our competence consists of research on social work and inclusive leadership on the one hand, and measuring physical activity and its effects on the other, and research and development in information technology applications.

The focus of the study is the involvement of different civic groups and its importance for wellbeing. Participation is understood as a critical empowerment, maintaining one's own and communal agency, and the strength of diverse identities. The eco-social perspective supports inclusion and the transition of services to sustainable development. Another area of research is the ability of individuals to act. The purpose of such research is to support the wellbeing of individuals and to create conditions for preventing functional problems - even with the help of information technology applications.
