Grant from TrygFonden to MIB Associate Professor Kira Vibe Jespersen

How do you fall asleep? New project will map the strategies used to fall asleep - with a specific interest in music.

Trygfonden has granted DKK 250,000 to Kira Vibe Jespersen and her project that aims to map the strategies used to improve sleep in the general population with a specific interest in the use of music for sleep.

Kira will conduct two surveys to investigate the sleep behaviour of the Danish population and the factors determining the use of music for sleep. Data from more than 2000 people will be collected. The knowledge generated by this project is an essential prerequisite for the development of new initiatives to improve sleep in the general population as well as in people suffering from insomnia.
