Nivel, short for ‘Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research’, is an independent foundation which contributes to the quality and effectiveness of the Dutch healthcare system. Nivel positions itself on the crossroads between the scientific community, policymakers and the healthcare field (providers, insurance companies, professional and patient organisations). We are active in the multidisciplinary field of scientific research on how healthcare is affected by social factors, financing systems, organisational processes, health technology and personal behaviours.

Together with the European Observatory, Nivel leads Work Package 2 of the BeWell project. Its key task is to develop ‘skills intelligence’ to inform the activities within different WPs of the project.
