The strategic initiative HEWI (Health, Wealth and Inequality)
A collaboration between demographers at Max O and economists at the Department of Business and Economics
In 2016, we established an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Max-Planck Odense Center on the Biodemography of Aging (MaxO), Historical Economics and Development group (HEDG) and Center of Health Economics Research (COHERE).
The vision is to turn this collaboration into a truly excellent and unique research unit across the Department of Business and Economics and faculties at SDU. The ambition is to produce excellent research which is publishable in the most prestigious journals, has relevance to society and ultimately helps to inform policy. In accordance with the objectives of the faculty of Business and Social Sciences, this strategic initiative strongly emphasizes the importance and the need for interdisciplinary research when addressing the most challenging and ambitious research problems.
