Capio Research Foundation – supporting research close to patients.
In 2001, Capio established a research foundation to support patient-based research and other significant research for the benefit of public health in general. The research aims to increase knowledge of how healthcare activities can reduce patients’ suffering and increase their quality of life.
The research can also focus on improving working methods and care processes and can increase knowledge of quality and safety in healthcare and medical care, as well as of financial care evaluation systems.
During 2020, the foundation will not accept any applications or distribute research or travel grants.
In 2019, 29 projects were awarded grants from the Research Foundation, for a total of SEK 820,000. Since the start, the foundation has awarded grants exceeding MSEK 18.
