The BMBF Medical Informatics Initiative is the latest, national-scale funding schema for university hospitals in Germany. Four national consortia consisting of university hospitals, research partners, and associated industry partners were selected in 2018 to build-up and contribute to Germany’s next-generation digital healthcare infrastructure. The given session will provide a detailed overview of the funding program, its strategic aims, first findings from consortia work, and a forum for mutual exchange for collaborations.
