Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare funding

Dr Philip Tucker, in collaboration with the Stress Research Institute of Stockholm University (http://www.stressforskning.su.se/english/), was part of a successful bid to the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare.

The project will study the effects of flexible work hours on health and job-related outcomes, with £17,600 of the awarded funds coming to Swansea. The project will involve analysing data from large scale longitudinal surveys conducted in Sweden and 11 other European countries. The results may be of great practical importance for optimizing working hours to suit individual needs while also maintaining efficient production.
