A Landmark Achievement: EU's Generous Grant Boosts Elderly Care Research at University of StavangerPhoto: SHARE
The University of Stavanger is making significant strides in the healthcare sector, with its recent achievement of a generous 6 million euros grant from Horizon Europe, the EU's premier research program. This grant is aimed at supporting the ambitious Support4Resilience (S4R) project helmed by the SHARE – Center for Resilience in Healthcare.
Europe's elderly care sector grapples with labour shortages and demands exceeding capacities, exacerbating stress and burnout rates among healthcare workers. The S4R project, spearheaded by Siri Wiig, seeks to remedy this by creating tools for leaders in elderly care, focusing on bolstering resilience and mental well-being among healthcare staff.
Beginning in 2024, the project's primary objective is to develop, execute, and evaluate a research-based toolbox catering to healthcare leaders. This toolbox, to be tested across six European countries, promises to offer tailored solutions for the various challenges faced by leaders in the healthcare industry.
With this prestigious grant, the University of Stavanger solidifies its commitment to driving improvements in elderly care across Europe, emphasizing a holistic approach to better healthcare, and addressing pivotal societal challenges.
