Studies in Practical Knowledge

Graphic element for the subject of Studies of Practical KnowledgeThe Centre for Studies in Practical Knowledge was established at Södertörn University in 2001. We want to create meetings between different forms of knowledge: theory and practice, art and science. We investigate, highlight and develop practical knowledge, with an emphasis on the different forms of knowledge used in working life.


About the subject

Meetings between people are the foundation of many professions. The Centre for Studies in Practical Knowledge conducts research and also offers continuing education for professional groups in which different forms of knowledge of human nature are decisive skills: in the caring professions and the school system, for actors and the police, to give just a few examples.

The Centre is run by a management group and the Director Jonna Lappalainen.
