Research Director

In SINTEF, research and innovation within the health sector is about to see the sector in a user, service, and system perspective.

Technology development

  • We develop and evaluate technology that provides new opportunities for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and interaction.

Service development

  • We have detailed knowledge of needs and basic knowledge about the health service as a system. We use this broad knowledge to evaluate health services as well as to develop new services and technological solutions that can improve it.

Analysis and evaluation

  • We offer economic and social analyses, as well as evaluation of effects.
