Developments in IT, life sciences and medical technology are opening up unprecedented opportunities for transforming our healthcare. But of course, no one can implement such a change alone.

To make the most of these new opportunities, we need to join up in different constellations of expertise, connecting across disciplines and organisations.

Overcoming barriers

Collaboration doesn’t just happen. Someone needs to make introductions and help maintain momentum. Although most specialists and entrepreneurs recognise the importance of cross-disciplinary research, they find it difficult to find time to explore options and initiate cross-disciplinary projects. This is where Medical Delta comes in. We help universities, regional governments, scientists and businesses to overcome cross-disciplinary barriers and silo mentality by providing them with a platform through which they can easily launch collaborations.

Pragmatic

We take a pragmatic approach in providing this assistance. Sometimes scientists or companies seek us out to help them find suitable partners; at other times we reach out to them when we see interesting opportunities for interaction. And often, we facilitate discussions between organisations that may never have considered cross-sector collaboration before – leading to potentially ground-breaking innovations.

Listening to feedback

In encouraging these interdisciplinary relationships, our ultimate aim is to foster the development of a new model of healthcare, one that’s focused on prevention, early diagnosis and precise, targeted treatment. We believe that the ultimate goal should be to improve the quality of life of the individual, while creating a sustainable healthcare sector. That’s why we continually examine user needs and take their feedback on board. In this way, we ensure that the research we facilitate is driven not only by what is possible, but – above all – by what is necessary.

Our professors - Providing a firm scientific basis

Medical Delta has so far appointed 18 professors in some 23 fields. They are affiliated with leading research institutions in the region, including universities and university medical centres. They direct research projects within the scope of Medical Delta and ensure that the quality of the research is world-class.
