The Citizenlab is a collaboration of various knowledge institutions, healthcare organisations, foundations, companies and citizens. The Citizenlab conducts research to improve health, welfare and quality of life.
The Citizenlab focuses, among other things, on rheumatoid arthritis. This is a chronic disease that can have a great impact on people’s lives. In the Citizenlab, we would like to work with people with arthritis to investigate the questions they have.
People with arthritis have a lot to offer to scientific research. By experiencing the condition on a daily basis, they have acquired a lot of knowledge. As a result, they know, for example, which topics are important, what is lacking in the area of care, or what is not going well in care or daily life. The questions that arise can lead to research. People with arthritis can also contribute by designing the research so that it is effective and meets the wishes of the participants. Through strong collaboration, we hope to achieve good results for both people with arthritis and for science!
