Our healthcare services research is organised in a total of thirteen units or fields of expertise. Each unit consists of heterogeneous group of our researchers, of whom several are experts in their specific field. Coordinator of each unit is one of those experts, usually a professor, with extensive research experience in the field concerned. By interacting and collaborating with each other and with third parties, the teams focus on the more complex societal questions and challenges.
