Summary of key aims

The programme's aim is to improve research in health care system and to decrease the deficits in this research field in Germany. In addition, the programme aims to lower the barriers to transfer the research results into the health care system. Scientists shall get used to the relevant questions concerning the health care system. Importantly, they shall contribute to the decision making process of the health insurance funds in Germany. The cooperation between the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and the health insurance funds (GKV) eventually aims at improving the situation of the patients. The funding measure was initiated by the BMBF, the health ministry (BMG) and the GKV in 1999. BMBF and GKV contribute equally to the funding with 0,5 Mio. Euro each. The programme runs for 6 years, with three funding periods, each of which lasts for 2 years.
