The GRIIS helps improve people’s quality of life by combining technology, health and scientific research.

At the GRIIS, we contribute to the development of a fair and effective health care system where citizens play active roles.

Powering research to improve health care

The GRIIS conducts world-class research in computer science, health sciences, medicine, law and philosophy.
