Man, well-being and environment
Under this theme research focus is on human-environment relationship and well-being, especially in the context of northern Finland. Utilisation of nature and human-animal relationship are part of research on environmental studies. For instance, the ERC Starting Grant “Domestication in Action” hosted by the Faculty focuses on investigating the processes of reindeer domestication. Research on human well-being carried out at the Faculty covers wide range of research starting from mental health and medical history to food culture and health literacy.
