Research Forum Global Health

Global health is a challenge that Berlin, as an integrated research environment, is also facing. In the Research Forum Global Health, scientists as well as stakeholders from organized civil society, politics, economy, art, and culture participate in a joint knowledge exchange in thematic workshops.

Durch diesen Wissensaustausch und gemeinsames Lernen sollen drängende Fragen zu globaler Gesundheit formuliert werden, auf die Berlin als Forschungs-, Lebens- und Wirtschaftsraum Antworten liefern kann. In einem Pilotprozess werden Zukunftsthemen gemeinsam identifiziert und transdisziplinäre Netzwerke aufgebaut, die diese Themen sowohl in die Forschung als auch in die konkrete Anwendung bringen.

Through this knowledge exchange and shared learning, pressing questions about global health will be formulated to which Berlin, as a research, living and economic venue, can provide answers. In a pilot process, future topics will be jointly identified, and transdisciplinary networks established to bring these topics into both research and concrete application.

Thus, the alliance’s Grand Challenge Initiative on Global Health will be expanded beyond the five Exploration Projects funded in this area and accompanied by transdisciplinary research. For the success of the process, the Research Forum provides structural, personnel, professional and financial resources. The process is accompanied by a Sounding Board whose members contribute scientific and non-scientific expertise.
