Medical Informatics Initiative

Strengthening research and advancing healthcare

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) launched its medical informatics funding scheme to make data from healthcare and research more useful and meaningful. It provides around 300 million euros with the aim of strengthening medical research and improving patient care. All of Germany’s university hospitals have joined forces with research institutions, businesses, health insurers, and patient advocacy groups to create a framework that harnesses research findings to the direct benefit of patients.
