Four Pillars

We believe that ensuring human rights, social security and social comfort for all requires quality international collaboration, scientific research, innovations and social enterprising.

1. International collaboration

The expected outcome from the HR&S intervention is high quality cross-cultural collaboration built on mutual truth, trust, respect and understanding. Through the collaboration knowledge is shared both ways and trustful relations built and maintained.

2. Scientific research

The expected outcome from the scientific research programme is that the HR&S researchers have access to the same opportunities as the higher income countries researchers, and thus have the same opportunities to do quality research, and to distribute and implement results.

3. Innovations

The expected outcome is that innovators in the HR&S programmes have access to the same opportunities as innovators in higher income countries, to develop innovative products and services and to offer them to the society.

4. Social enterprising

To have the opportunity earn our own money is a matter of dignity. To be able to ensure social security for ourselves and our families is core to a good life. The expect outcome from the HR&S programme is that entrepreneurs in our Target countries will have the opportunity to start and run social enterprises.

 

 

A holistic approach

Our concept is a holistic approach. The HR&S has developed seven unique tools in order to implement the four pillars in actual practice.

Seven Tools

We has developed seven unique tools in order to implement the four pillars in actual practice. 

The tools provided by HR&S include coaching on having procedures in place that ensures good ethics and firm structure (TAct), coaching on cross-cultural partnership understanding (CCP), and an outcome evaluation planning guide (ROPE). HR&S also offers an outcome based knowledge sharing programme addressing eight areas of significant importance for researchers (OutSciCap), as well as a tool for having access to functioning advanced scientific equipment (FAST). The HR&S innovation programme aims at contributing to a favourable environment that promotes the initiation, management, dissemination and implementations of innovations in non-OECD countries (InnoC). HR&S also addresses basic needs through the Basic services programme (BASER), which offers support to social entrepreneurs who wants to supply vulnerable populations with their basic needs.
