Caring Society

In the ‘Caring Society’ key topic, we place particular emphasis on the relationships between health, lifestyle and social circumstances in research, lecturing and continuing education. Promoting the quality of life and health of people of all ages is a key goal for a cohesive society.

Promoting a cohesive society with high quality of life

“Health and prosperity: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages” – UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3

We explore the challenges of an ageing but diverse society in relation to this goal. A society containing more and more people with multimorbid disease patterns, while the shortage of specialist healthcare professionals is becoming increasingly acute. We carry out research on the social conditions of a healthy lifestyle and look for technological, social and structural opportunities to improve the quality of life of people facing health-related and social challenges. Together with stakeholders and service users, we develop innovations promoting health and well-being.
