CTA collaborates with a variety of stakeholders, both nationally and internationally. Collaboration can take place within: the framework of existing projects; as part of the start-up of a research project; during follow-up research; within evaluation assignments; and through contract research.
For instance, CTA is currently collaborating with researchers from Australia as part of the OSSC research programme. There are also ongoing collaborations with researchers from the Netherlands, Germany, Finland and Denmark. In Sweden, CTA interacts with other universities, colleges and research centres, such as the Stress Research Institute and the Institute for Stress Medicine.
We have previosuly collaborated with the City of Malmö, Finsam Mittskåne, the Swedish Teachers Union, Folktandvården, IKEA, Scania, occupational health companies and a large religious organisation. We also arrange various types of activities such as conferences and seminars for researchers, practitioners and students.
