GRIPS is planned to be the next great satellite-born survey mission lead by Europe; it will look into the cosmos with unprecedented accuracy in several bands of the EM spectrum (infrared, X-rays, MeV gamma-rays); in particular in gamma-rays, GRIPS will be able to bridge the so-called MeV gap and to answer several questions brought forth by GeV-TeV gamma-ray observations. We will discuss here several connections to GeV-TeV gamma-ray astrophysics, focussing in particular to show how GRIPS will be crucial in revealing the origin of cosmic rays.
