04 May 2018. The consortium presently consists of the three university hospitals at Heidelberg, Göttingen and Hanover, and is complemented by more than 20 partners from academia and industry. The consortium has now been approached by five additional university hospitals, the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, the University Hospital Cologne, the University Hospital of Würzburg, Charité University Medicine Berlin and the Münster University Hospital, with the wish to join the HiGHmed consortium.
After successful completion of the ongoing formal application process the HiGHmed consortium will embrace eight leading university hospitals in Germany and thus will significantly increase its impact in clinical care and research across Germany. In a kickoff meeting with leading executives of all eight university hospitals on April 25th 2018, Prof. Roland Eils, coordinator of the HiGHmed consortium, discussed perspectives of the HiGHmed consortium supported by a sustained organizational structure integrating all HiGHmed partners.
