The ROCKWOOL Foundation supports the identification, development and testing of new and innovative solutions to specific problems in society – solutions that achieve their effects through practical interventions.
The aim of these interventions is to extend knowledge with regard to effective solutions to key problems affecting the welfare society. This means that the solutions must fulfil requirements with respect to being supported by research-based evidence. The new solutions are developed and trialled in close cooperation with our external partners and with the active involvement of the associated target groups and actors, with the long-term goal of upscaling and nationwide implementation.
The Board of the Foundation decides which projects will be supported, on the basis of recommendations from the expert programme committee. This applies both to projects carried out by the Foundation’s own Interventions Unit and to those conducted by external parties.
