    Samtal mellan chef och medarbetare är kärnan i en metod som kan förbättra både arbetsmiljö, välmående och arbetsprestationer på en arbetsplats. Metoden är utvecklad av våra forskare som menar att gruppsamtal om en riskbedömning är ett enkelt sätt att förebygga risker inom organisatorisk och social arbetsmiljö (OSA).

    Didactics, or the doctrine of teaching, is a powerful tool for teachers at all education levels to reflect about their own teaching. This also applies to teachers in higher education, where knowledge, democracy and participation should be key words. This is the opinion of Johannes Rytzler, Senior Lecturer in teaching and learning at Mälardalen University.

    Public opinion changes over time – and it is becoming more and more liberal. Our researcher has investigated opinion trends on several moral issues in the US and England. These two countries have different political cultures and systems, different media landscapes and various levels of religiousness. Despite this, his study shows that the opinion trends in these countries are practically identical.

    A new research project, which is funded by the Swedish Research Council, will develop energy-efficient Deep Learning models to help reduce the carbon footprint. Today, Deep Learning (DL) is widely used in learning and interpreting large amounts of data, such as in health monitoring and robotics, but also in social media networking. Today's DL models require a high energy consumption, which leads to substantial environmental costs. For instance, a DL model can generate carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to the total lifetime carbon dioxide emissions of five cars.

    When faced with major collective risks, such as climate change or the coronavirus pandemic, we accept more restrictive social norms. We also become more willing to cooperate with those persons we do not know. However, when we perceive that the risks are reduced, for instance, when the Coronavirus restrictions in society have been lifted, we become less willing to accept restrictive social norms. Mälardalen University (MDH) has been conducting research on this topic in cooperation with universities in Madrid, Spain and Turin, Italy.
