With regard to health, we fund RnD projects that are expected to quickly prevent, shorten and minimise absence due to illness and that promote good health.
For example, it could be:
Measures for prevention and treatment
Factors for good health
The development and evaluation of methods of treatment
The exploitation of work capacity
Risk factors for sick leave
Rehabilitation for the return to work
Factors that affect the return to work
The results of this research must be translated into practical benefit and converted into measures that improve work environments and promote good health.
- The projects must include a plan for the exploitation and implementation of the benefits
- There should be an internal organisation that supports and conducts activities to ensure the dissemination of the results
- We have an organisation that supports and conducts activities for the communication and dissemination of the research results
- We work in close collaboration with our partners Prevent and Suntarbetsliv, who work to move the results of the research forwards
Our partners Prevent and Suntarbetsliv have been commissioned to disseminate and exploit the benefits of the research that is funded by AFA Insurance. Prevent works with the private sector, whilst Suntarbetsliv works with local government at a municipal and regional level.
