Global Health – The Role of Germany

Contribution of Research and Development to Resilient Health System – The Role of Germany

A wide range of research activities is needed to build, operate and sustain resilient health systems. Research provides the necessary epidemiological and public health data. R&D deliver the required products and services. Research infrastructures are the indispensable basis for rapid diagnostic responses in case of health crises. The fourth session aims to highlight the role of research in HSS.
We brought scientists together at the Lindau Laureate Meeting from different areas of health research and science support in order to build bridges between areas, to discuss ways to speed up the translation and to ultimately define the basic requirements for R&D in a resilient health system. We want to present our results and to focus on the role of Germany.
