Mission

The activities of BIH Digital Labs directly drive the implementation of the BIH mission of translational medicine, i.e., the transfer of biomedical research results and inventions to patients and the healthcare market, in the field of digital health. This is achieved by offering services to employees of the Charité including the BIH, to innovative digital health companies, as well as to digital health interested parties in the national and international innovation ecosystem. As a result, BIH Digital Labs strives to contribute to the generation of societal benefits.

Digital Labs is an activity of BIH Innovations, the joint technology transfer of Charité and BIH. Closely aligned with other BIH offerings, Digital Labs focuses on Digital Health - the convergence of new technologies such as 3D/ Additive Manufacturing, Augmented/ Mixed/ Virtual Reality, Machine Learning/ Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Sensors and Software with Life Sciences and Healthcare.
