Brief project description:

MIRACUM - Medical Informatics in Research And Care in University Medicine

Information event on 10th of April from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Flyer

The MIRACUM medical informatics project in Freiburg is part of the MIRACUM constortium coordinated by Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Prokosch, the Chair of Medical Informatics at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg. Project start was January 2018. MIRACUM is funded for 4 years initially.

The goal of MIRACUM is to merge the wide range of data clusters from medical care and research in data integration centers so that this data can be used centrally using innovative IT systems for research projects and to make specific treatment decisions.


With its Medical Informatics Initiative (MI-I) the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) sets the course towards a powerful digitalized medicine for the benefit of patients. Seven consortia in Germany were funded in the so-called conceptual phase, 4 of which were selected for a 4-year-full-funding phase (development and networking phase) in order to implement their concepts. MIRACUM is made up of eight universities with university hospitals (Freiburg, Erlangen, Frankfurt, Gießen, Magdeburg, Mainz, Mannheim and Marburg), two universities of applied sciences (Hochschule Mannheim und Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen) and one partner from industry (Averbis, Freiburg) and is therefore the largest of the 4 consortia. Further Partners are about to join MIRACUM.
