Research for value and benefit

MDH research is about a more sustainable society, where healthcare and elderly care is safer and the schools are of higher quality. Where advanced technology makes life easier and safer, we use renewable energy and businesses can compete even better. Our research is carried out in co-production with both the public and private sectors, regionally, nationally and globally.
