The research area supports the Human Resource Programme and is led by Professor Helene Ahl. Three principal research areas are:

  • HR and leadership
  • Lifelong and adult learning
  • Gender, equality and inclusion

The research group consists of about ten researchers from various professional and disciplinary backgrounds, such as education, psychology and business administration. Earlier research projects have focused on competence development and learning in working life; leadership and human resources; intergenerational learning and knowledge transfer; gender and equality; diversity and inclusion; and adult learning in formal and non-formal education.

The interdisciplinary composition of the research group gives it its strength. An interactive research approach generates new knowledge which is put into practice through shared learning between researchers and practitioners.

The research area was developed within the framework of the Swedish national research centre for lifelong learning, Encell. For more information, visit Encell's website.
