Aragon Health Sciences Institute
"Our mission is to facilitate the promotion of research, effective innovation and decision-making in health services through knowledge management"
The Aragón Health Sciences Institute (IACS) is the entity that promotes knowledge in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the region of Aragón (Spain).
At the IACS we develop our activity with the expectation of contributing to high quality care in the Public Health System, supporting innovation, research of excellence and reference training, as well as supporting wealth creation and economic growth.
The Institute is made up of people from multiple Healthcare Centers in Aragón, including hospitals and Primary Care centers, and those belonging to central services. These central services are differentiated into three functional areas: Knowledge Production and Innovation area, Knowledge Transfer area and Management area. The latter serves the previous two.
We are located in the Aragón Biomedical Research Center (CIBA), which was born from the consensus between the Health Department of the Government of Aragón, the IACS, and the University of Zaragoza, with the aim of creating a center of excellence for Biosanitary Research.
