Centres of Excellence

Finnish Centre of Excellence in Historical Research studies the history of Finland from the late middle ages to present day or more precisely: what is the history of Finland. The basic idea of all research in this CoE is that it is a history of an imagined nation, a critical approach to long a process, formations, interactions, structures, communities and identities, which later become known as the history of Finland.

Centre of Excellence in Research on Ageing and Care (CoE AgeCare) studies the transformation of ageing and care using novel conceptual and interdisciplinary perspectives, conjoining the analysis of diversification of everyday life to that of ongoing profound societal and policy change. The CoE combines scholarship from social policy, sociology and gerontology, analysing older people’s care needs, agency and equality as well as the changing character of care work in the context of transnationalisation and digitalisation of the ageing society.
