Leibniz Research Alliance "Health Technologies"
The member institutes of the Leibniz Health Technologies Research Alliance work on specific technological solutions to urgent medical challenges. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the alliance aims to draw together prevention, diagnostics and therapy. Expertise is pooled from a wide range of scientific disciplines: from photonics and medicine to microelectronics, materials research, economic research and applied mathematics. In this way, innovative health technologies are guided to market maturity along a seamless innovation chain, with the help of industry, hospitals, insurance companies and policymakers. The Leibniz Health Technologies Research Alliance follows a holistic concept, which includes research into the economic, social and ethical consequences of new technologies.
