About the INNOVATEDIGNITY-ITN

INNOVATEDIGNITY-ITN’s consortium is made up of caring science scholars working on experiential perspectives of human dignity, care, and well-being from nine institutions in five European Union countries: Sweden, Denmark, Greece, Norway and the United Kingdom and nine partners in four countries.

The Early Stage Researcher (ESR) will be hosted at Linnaeus University, Sweden.

The purpose of INNOVATEDIGNITY-ITN funded by the European Commission (2019–2023) is to develop a shared research and training agenda in order to educate the next generation of interdisciplinary health care researchers and care leaders across Europe. The project is a response to the Europe wide need to provide sustainable and dignified care for older people at home and in residential, municipal and hospital settings.

The network will look in detail at how older people currently experience care, how they can be supported to live well and how technology, gender, workforce pressures and institutional factors can impact experiences of dignity and well-being. INNOVATEDIGNITY-ITN will research new ways of engaging with older people to shape digital developments, will examine new kinds of care delivery, including long term residential care and rapid transitions from acute hospital care to home, gender imbalances and workforce sustainability to create new forms of care activities that include, participatory models and co-design with older people in response to the growing lack of sustainability in older person care and evidence of current care failings.
