Meanings of life & Profession
Meanings of Life & Profession is the university’s practical centre and home for activities funded through contract research. The centre’s mission is to contribute to expanding the scope for meanings of life and humanization in professional practice and organizations. The centre works towards the same goal through advanced training, refresher courses, training courses, coaching, contract research, management consultancy, and workshops and symposiums about meanings of life and humanization issues. The main focus of the centre’s activities is professionals and their organizations in the care, welfare, education and public service sectors.
Research contracts are accepted only if they are technically compatible with the projects in this research programme. The practical centre forms a link between the project teams and the professionals and organizations ‘in the field’, and thus contributes significantly to the valorization of University of Humanistic Studies research. The director is advised on technical matters by an academic advisory council.
