Competence measures and long-term sick leave

On behalf of the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV,) Fafo will carry out a preliminary project to investigate if competence measures targeting persons with long-term sick leave can enhance job mobility. The purpose of the project is to develop a status of knowledge and a mapping tool, as well as to collect information about the potential target group. Five test counties will participate.

The project is a cooperation between Fafo, the University of South-East Norway and the University of Bergen.
