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.
“Researchers need to quickly and efficiently access high-quality health data. Transferring knowledge quickly to health care teams could prevent deaths, complications, hospitalizations and unnecessary costs.”
—Jean-François Ethier, Scientific Co-Director of the GRIIS
Solutions for learning health systems
The knowledge and technologies we create are part of citizen-centred health care systems.
