From Luleå University of Technology, three researchers participate in different fields:
Mari Runardotter works as an senoir lecturer and researcher with assignments as education leader for the digital service development program. Her research focuses on the possibilities and consequences of digitalisation for individuals, organizations and society. Mari is interested in questions such as: how should we create digitally included villages where the residents have the same participation in the digital community as urban dwellers?
Päivi Juuso (district nurse) is senoir lecturer and researcher on health and digitalization issues. Päivi is the project leader in the Nordic NaBs project, which works with sustainable solutions where entrepreneurs in the natural resource industry can act as a resource in the region and where public activities can offer nature-supported rehabilitation to promote health and prevent ill-health. In other words: how can nature support our health?
Åsa Engström (intensive care nurse) is a professor, head of subject in nursing and a leader in the health field at Luleå University of Technology. Åsa is interested in questions about the possibilities and risks of digitalisation for our health, as well as the importance of nature for health and well-being. Åsa will lead the discussion on how we can achieve a balance between being relaxed and connected, and how nature can be a support for sustainable health.
