Multidisciplinary research at the Centre for Work Life and Evaluation Studies (CTA) includes subjects such as economic history, human geography, psychology, sociology, public health and political science. These represent a broad competence within a wide range of theoretical approaches and research methods.

Our research

CTA researchers study various aspects of work and work life. Several research projects are currently underway and the centre also conducts evaluations and mission research in collaboration with external stakeholders.

Researchers at CTA

Seminar series

CTA arranges a seminar series that presents different aspects of work life and evaluation studies. Most of the seminars are held in Swedish, but occasionally they are held in English. Researchers, students and practitioners are all welcome to attend.

Collaboration

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.

If you are interested in collaborating with CTA, please contact director Sandra Jönsson or a specific CTA researcher.
