About CAPHRI

Our aim is to create a healthy society for everyone. We are doing this by performing high quality research to innovate in care and public health. Building a bridge between our research and society has our highest priority. Research that has no societal relevance does not belong to CAPHRI.

There are strong ties between CAPHRI, the University Medical Centre (MUMC+) in Maastricht, and local care organizations in the province of Limburg, which enables us to bring solutions for real-life problems in care and public health. In addition, CAPHRI fosters strong research collaborations around the world. “From global to local” is one of our mottos.

We believe that innovations take place when people from different backgrounds, perspectives and capabilities meet and converge. CAPHRI is organised along six thematic-oriented research lines in which researchers from different departments operate together in multidisciplinary teams. CAPHRI attracts top scientists from around the world and is known for its comprehensive PhD training programme for young talented scientists. CAPHRI values the quality of its research and has therefore its own quality assurance system, with a quality officer and guidelines for research conduct and auditing.
