Fields of study
Including Children and Young People in the Voluntary Service
The purpose of this project is to look into how well different groups of young people are included in the volunteering, and what tools organisations and authorities use to include these young people.
Socio-spatial Inequality among Families with Children with Disabilities who are Entitled to Cash Benefits and Welfare Services (UPTAKE)
The research project will provide insight into the uptake and delivery of benefits and services among parents of children with disabilities.
Ungdata is a cross-national data collection scheme, designed to conduct youth surveys at the municipal level in Norway. NOVA administers the national database which is used as a basis for many research projects.
