WINC - Working hours In the Nordic Countries

WINC is a network for researchers from the Nordic countries with interest in research in working hours.


The aim of WINC is to establish the network for better co-ordinating existing research and cohorts on working hours and health in the Nordic countries. Further on to discuss possibilities for collaboration across countries and cohorts and to develop new high quality research projects, and make jointed applications for funding of research.
