INVEST Inequalities, Interventions and New Welfare State

INVEST Research Flagship Centre operates under the University of Turku and the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). INVEST aims at providing a new model for the welfare states that is more equal, better targeted to problem groups, more anticipatory as well as economically and socially sustainable.

Based on cutting-edge research on the conditions and mechanisms involved at different periods of development, INVEST will evaluate and develop various universal and targeted interventions to improve the efficiency of the current welfare state institutions at critical points of the early life course.

The operations of the INVEST Research Flagship Centre are funded by the Academy of Finland Flagship Programme, the host institutions and various other external research funders such as European Research Council (ERC) and U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH).
