In Germany and Europe there is a growing need for medical research, but at the same time there are less and less subsidies. Therefore available resources have to be used as efficiently as possible. Consequently it is crucial to conduct research originating from concrete problems in application areas – only then the necessary developments for the solutions of these real problems can be realized in an efficient and sustainable way. This is where the joint project Realraum Innovations Labor of Helios university hospital Wuppertal and the Fraunhofer-inHaus-Centerin Duisburg starts. The common goal: to achieve positive effects on the innovative patient care and the work routine in hospitals as well as to improve the economic possibilities.
