“It is fascinating to research one of the deepest and strongest motives there is: hope.”Linkedin
The aim of this Dutch foundation is to describe, measure and positively influence hope on a scientific basis. This goal is achieved by conducting scientific research into hope in society and in organizations. The research is conducted by the Institute of Leadership and Social Ethics.
By focusing the measurement of hope on specific contexts such as a company or the city, specific data can be collected that provide more insight into hope in the specific context. This insight can be useful in making policy and in interventions to positively influence hope.Stichting Netherlands Hope Research Institute Institute of Leadership and Social Ethics
