We make data ready for research to build a healthier world.

Nonprofit. Digital. Secure.

Welcome to Data4Life

We digitalize health research.

Step counts in a smartwatch, sleep patterns tracked per app, vital signs monitored by a doctor – every day more and more health data is being generated as we go about our daily lives. But the potential of this data is not being fully utilized. We're here to change that. Together with our partners, we're working to make health data ready for research.

In doing so, we can play a significant part in improving the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. For the benefit of all.
