Research of the HSO Group

Our research group uses a holistic view to health, considering physical, social, mental and spiritual well-being. Health is created in everyday-life and arises from interaction between individual lifestyle, the social and physical environment.

The themes we study concern eating practices, physical activity, workplace health, green environment and health, landscape, urban planning and health, and the ageing society. Our research involves a disciplinary, sociological and social psychological perspective as well as an applied, multi-disciplinary perspective, using insights from systems thinking and organizational development theory. Within our group, we apply a combination of research techniques. This mixed methodology concerns both the combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods as well as traditional and action research.
