What is meant by the Berlin approach to investigating determinants of Global Health?
Exploration Projects aim to establish inter- and transdisciplinary research groups in Berlin dedicated to issues of societal relevance which coordinate and link the research undertaken by members of the Berlin University Alliance. In doing so, they contribute to the development of the Grand Challenge Initiatives of the Alliance and strengthen Berlin as a center of research.
The overarching aim is to develop an adequate approach toward tackling Global Health determinants. For this, it is essential to understand the preconditions, dynamics, perspectives and limitations of this aim and to establish suitable long-term and impactful research programs.
Ultimately, the Exploration Projects will contribute to making Berlin an internationally visible center for cutting-edge research on Global Health determinants.
