Funding and collaboration

My PhD project is funded by the Research Council of Norway and part of the research project «The impact of quality in Kindergarten for better mental health in children: a Norwegian survey-registry linkage study (MoBaKinder)».

The project collaboration involves a multidisciplinary team of national and international experts in the field of mental health, developmental psychology, educational science and health promotion from the University of Oslo, the University College of Southeast Norway, the Norwegian Business School, the Danish National Institute of Public Health and the National University of Ireland Galway.

The main objective of the PhD project is to contribute with new knowledge on the impact of quality in Early Childhood Education and Care on child development, primarily focusing on positive psychology.
