German-US Affiliations - InnoHealth USA

Germany and the United States of America

A handshake between partners as a sign of exchange and cooperation.

Partners in science and technological collaboration
The partnership between the USA and Germany is valuable, particularly in scientific and technological cooperation. Those long standing bilateral relations form the foundation enabling German and US-researchers and entrepreneurs to find innovative solutions to secure sustainable growth and, thereby, successfully facing global challenges. Both countries offer outstandingly well equipped research infrastructures as well as excellent research organizations and successful companies driving scientific progress. Thus, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States regularly support joint research projects to strengthen and expand cooperation between German and U.S. researchers.

Joint progress in digital healthcare

The COVID 19 pandemic is not the only reason for an increased public awareness and acceptance of digital healthcare, the shortcomings of the healthcare systems under pressure in both countries have also contributed to this. To successfully tackle the corresponding challenges, e.g. remote care the consistent cooperation of several stakeholders in the field of medical technology is required. As equally important and innovative strategic partners, Germany and the US are therefore focusing on high-performance health research, human-centered AI, intelligent medicine and digital innovations for our aging society.
