The programme is also intended to provide the institutions offering educational programmes in health and social services with a broader foundation in research-based knowledge.

The proposal is presented in the new white paper on education for welfare.

The Government emphasises that the programme must seek to maintain close ties between health and welfare services, researchers and relevant educational programmes.

Preparations for the programme will include an assessment of how the programme can draw on existing experience with four-party cooperation, in which the users comprise a fourth, and crucial, party.

Very positive

“The Research Council takes a very positive view of the proposal for a new programme. It complements our own new main priority area “Healthy and  Jesper Simonsen Photo: Sverre Chr. Jarild Jesper Simonsen (Photo: Sverre Chr. Jarild) active for many years”. This is the largest of the five areas we are prioritising in the Research Council’s budget proposals for 2013,” says Jesper Simonsen, Executive Director of the Division for Society and Health at the Research Council.

Mr Simonsen emphasises that the Research Council has widespread experience with practice-oriented R&D activities through its Programme for Practice-based Education Research (PRAKUT).

“Practice-based knowledge development ensures a stronger connection between professional education and professional practice. The knowledge triangle of research, education and practice is essential for the further development of various types of social services,” says Mr Simonsen.
