Summary of key aims

The funding measure Competence Networks in Medicine aims to support innovative efficient research and its translation into patient care by means of networking. The tasks of disease-related Competence Networks in Medicine comprise:
Research on diseases
Interdisciplinary cooperation of basic scientists and clinicians within the Competence Networks is expected to enhance the development of new and efficient solutions to urgent questions of patient care.
Expert networking
Researchers in the Competence Networks build up joint data and material banks and bring together disease-related study groups. This research infrastructure enables to tackle important clinical questions. Networking between research and health care improves the translation of research results into practice. For this purpose, reviews and guidelines are written, standards in diagnosis and therapy developed, and measures for quality assurance implemented. In the Competence Networks daily-routine practice relevant research questions are addressed.
Knowledge transfer
The Competence Networks promote knowledge transfer among experts and provide information for patients, their relatives and the general public. The networks offer a wide range of information, from broad educational campaigns over newsletters and brochures to professional training for practitioners
