The Danish Center for Social Science Research

VIVE is an independent research and analysis centre operating under the Ministry of the Interior and Health that carries out research and analysis projects in all the major aspects of welfare and the welfare state.

We both initiate analysis and research projects ourselves and accept research commissions from a large number of clients including Danish municipal and regional authorities, agencies, government ministries and other organisations. We carry out research at an international level .

We draw upon the latest international studies in the design and execution of research and analysis projects while also taking into account the experience and knowledge of practitioners and decision-makers.
