The overall objective of the SYKEFRAVAER programme is to create conditions that promote a satisfactory working environment and good working health, as well as a high level of participation in the labour market by obtaining research-based knowledge about:
- Sickness absence, disability, withdrawal from the labour market and exclusion from working life;
- The interaction between work, the working environment and working health;
- Effective instruments for preventing and reducing sickness absence, disability and work-related illness and for promoting a satisfactory working environment and good health in the workplace.
These objectives will be achieved through high-quality research activities. The programme will also work to create a framework to promote research-based teaching.
