In Germany, around one billion euros are spent on healthcare every day. Besides climate change, growing healthcare costs and an aging population are one of the greatest societal challenges of our time. Smart strategies will have to make a significant contribution to affordable health and to securing society’s future.
The Fraunhofer Group for Health aims to facilitate a high degree of interdisciplinarity across the 4D model — drugs, diagnostics, devices and data. The innovation potential offered by interlinking the different scientific disciplines should provide significant added value for health research and patients.
