Thanks to advanced medical care and improved lifestyles, life expectancy is on the rise. However, the number of people suffering from widespread diseases like cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular conditions is growing commensurately and is pushing demand for medical progress. Hence, researchers are called upon to develop new approaches to prevent these illnesses, detect them early on, and provide meaningful treatment.
We possess a broad range of expertise in health research: the health sector, care research, clinical research, structural support, medical genome research, systematic medicine, biomedical research, ethics, evaluation and international cooperation.
We guarantee qualified planning and implementation of new funding activities, which are coordinated with our clients. This includes expert and independent scientific assessment of research projects, research and client-centric funding management and evaluation of priority funding. In many cases, progress in research is only possible through international collaboration, and many of these projects go beyond the boundaries of Europe to encompass countries such as Canada, the USA, and Israel. Good examples in this respect include the research networks on diseases of the nervous system and translational cancer research, and in particular the funding of clinical studies to fight HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in sub-Saharan Africa.
