What is the NUM?

The Network University Medicine (NUM) is a national network in which all 36 German university medical centres participate.

Originally established to deal with the Covid 19 pandemic, the NUM focuses on building a national and sustainable research infrastructure for medical research. With a focus on clinical research and healthcare research, the NUM aims to secure and support patient care, research and teaching in the current, but also in future crisis situations.

Why should I get involved in the NUM?

1. Development and establishment of infrastructures for clinical research (nationally and locally)

2. Third-party funding for conductin scientific projects
→ high approval rate of the scientific proposals

3. Networking
→ researchers have the opportunity to build a nation-wide network with renowned (medical) researchers

4. Publications
→ Authorship on paper by contributing research expertise or collected and provided data 

I am interested and would like to get involved in the NUM. How do I become part of the NUM?

There are several ways to get involved in the NUM:

  1. Scientific research projects
    This website provides information on all ongoing sub-projects of the NUM with the participation of the UMO. If you are interested in participating as a collaboration partner, please us.
  2. Discipline- and Organ-specific Working Groups (FOSA)
    The FOSAs have the intention to support and promote the (inter-)disciplinary exchange between researchers from different disciplines and medical fields. In addition, FOSA members can actively participate in shaping the NUM. If you are interested in joining or founding a FOSA, please us. You can find more information here.

What are the Local Coordintion Units (LCU)?

The Local Coordination Unit (LCU) supports the researchers by coordinating the NUM scientific projects. They are the link between Oldenburg and all its NUM members and associates and the Central Coordination Unit (CCU) in Berlin.

If you are interested in participating in the NUM or need support with an NUM project, please us.
