To facilitate the successful start of excellent research, the LBG hosts an interactive and free-thinking workshop event, called Ideas Lab. The Five-Day Ideas Lab will focus on the Challenge “Digital Health Meets Societal Needs – Transforming Health Systems into a Patient-Centred World”. The aim is to bring together a unique mix of expertise from various disciplines, to form interdisciplinary research teams that produce high-quality research proposals. Two separate, seven-year-funded, interdisciplinary Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes (LBI) in the digital health area will be formed afterwards. Closing date for applications: 20 December 2018.
