About our partnership model

The centre utilises a partnership model aimed to promote research carried out in close cooperation with external actors. In each joint project, the researcher and the external partner formulate the central research question together to ensure mutually beneficial outcomes. It is important that the research questions be formulated in a way that makes them both of high scientific interest and of strong interest to the respective project partner.

In addition to publication in academic journals or other outlets, which the University requires, projects must be reported to the external partner. Since it must be easy for the partner to access the research results and implement them in practice, the researcher(s) involved and the external partner must agree on how the project outcome should be reported. The model is designed so that each project corresponds to 30% of a full-time position.

The model also includes a support function where the centre director meets with the researchers involved in projects on several occasions to discuss and provide support in the research process.

Besides the research conducted within the framework of the partnership model, the centre for child and youth studies collaborates with external actors for example by funding doctoral studentships. Together with the Närhälsan community health services in Gothenburg and Campus Västervik in Västervik, two doctoral studentships funded in equal parts by the University and the respective partner were established in autumn 2016.

Outreach projects

Many collaborative research projects are focused around early intervention for children, adolescents and their families aimed to promote psychological health as well as inclusion of children and youth and thus social sustainability in the long term. Two new outreach projects have been launched in 2016: one in the municipality of Lysekil and one involving seven municipalities in the Fyrbodal region.
