Centre for Welfare Studies (CVS)

The Centre for Welfare Studies (CVS) at the University of Borås directs its activities towards the opportunities and challenges facing the modern welfare society.

A long-term goal is to contribute to sustainable welfare services. CVS desires to contribute by promoting regional growth through knowledge development in the welfare sector; by developing sustainable, well-functioning and collaborative welfare models; and within organisation and leadership.

Our work intends to offer inspiration and support through developing channels with politicians and leaders. We can compile research results and arrange conferences—all related to current welfare issues. We conduct border-crossing and interdisciplinary research and continued education with a basis in a variety of scientific disciplines. Education and research meet in the borders between leadership and organisation, learning and communication, health science, human work science, social science, and technology.
