Vision and strategy 2020 - 2024

The key vision of the PROMENTA Research Center is to generate and disseminate vital knowledge about causes, processes and gradients in mental health, drug use and quality of life. 


More specificially, our vision is to

1. Identify causal factors, processes and mechanisms leading to mental health problems, drug use and wellbeing.

2. Generate new knowledge about social and geographic gradients, and their operating processes and developmental pathways.

3. Establish novel scientific knowledge on how to prevent mental health problems and promote wellbeing through effective interventions.

4. Develop and apply novel methodological tools and approaches.

5. Disseminate our findings in high-quality scientific outlets, and to authorities, user groups and the public.


Our strategy is to

1. Develop and establish PROMENTA as an outstanding research organization with a collaborative environment.

2. Apply a multidisciplinary approach, integrating perspectives from psychology, sociology, medicine, genetics, neuroscience and statistics, and create unique synergy effects.

3. Attract collaborators and young talents, and provide unique opportunities for learning and joint research endeavors.

4. Apply for and obtain competitive grants to further strengthen our research and lay a foundation for continued development of the center.

5. Develop mechanisms for involving user groups and co-creation in research and implementation of new knowledge..
