Some of our research projects

Prestige - Gender Balance in Research Leadership at UiT The Arctic University of Norway The Prestige project will engage with the university community on gender equality, conduct research on the institional and relational mechanisms that maintain gender inequality in research  and provide recommendations on what is required to achieve the goal of a more evened distribution of power and resources within the university's major research efforts. Because this balance is affected by conditions at different levels of organization, the Prestige project involves a number of professional and administrative units in the work of gender balance.  The project's work is part of a process for long-term structural and cultural change in the UH sector. It is an interdisciplinary research and action project that encompasses many different academic environments It uses quantitative and qualitative methods from several academic traditions in a critical exploration of quality concepts, quality assessments and power relations in academia.
Artful Dementia Research Lab The Artful Dementia Research Lab at UiT The Arctic University of Norway conducts research on innovative understandings of ageing and dementia. On the basis of experimental interventions with the creative arts our researchers investigate other ways of living with and relating to dementia, thereby exploring art interventions as a mode of social science knowledge generation. Through developing a new conceptual repertoire, research conducted within the Artful Dementia Research Lab contributes to complementing medical and pharmacological interventions with experimental art interventions that are sensitive to socio-material dimensions of everyday life.
