Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

Methods: Qualitative methods (e.g., expert interviews) to create sustainability concepts

The overarching goal of PREPARED “PREpardness and PAndemic REsponse in Deutschland“ is to develop a blueprint for a feasible, collaborative, adaptable, and sustainable pandemic management and preparedness infrastructure within the NUM community. This will help to enable coordinated, targeted, and evidence-based responses to threats to patient care and public health caused by future pandemics. As the Chair of Information, we will continuously assess the economic sustainability of the project results and develop plans to utilize the solutions’ benefits after the project’s end. Moreover, we design measures to promote sustainable and self-governed community building.
