Network of University Medicine (NUM)

Providing patients with optimal care, preventing infections and expanding healthcare is the mission statement of the Network of University Medicine (NUM), founded in spring 2020. The network is currently coordinating research activities to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and develop new strategies for action. Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and coordinated by Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the research network is working on solutions to improve patient care and pandemic preparedness. All 36 German university medical centres as well as other partners are participating in the network.

Among other, the network focuses on clinical and healthcare research, which directly benefits patients, affects crisis management and helps to establish a national research infrastructure. To realise this task, the NUM and the participating institutions will be provided with up to 390 million euros for collaborative projects by mid-2025. In the medium term, the aim is to utilise the created structures and concepts to research other diseases and to improve cooperative research in university medicine in general.
