Research, development & innovations

Diak’s research, development and innovation activities are focused around the social care, health, deaconal and interpreting sectors.

We carry out R&D in these areas in cooperation with service users, workers, service providers and clients.

We develop new solutions and produce research data with service users, providers and clients.

We work with our partners to

  • promote inclusion and communality
  • prevent poverty and exclusion
  • improve service paths for customers
  • develop services and service systems.

Our research and development activities are based on the openness principle. Read more about open science and research at Diak.
