Founded in 1971, the University of Bremen is a relatively young, medium sized university with about 250 professors, 20.000 students and 12 faculties across natural sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. The University lays emphasis on interdisciplinary research and is among the institutions of higher education in Germany that recently won the prestigious “Institutional Strategy” award of the German Excellence Initiative which aims to promote outstanding research projects and institutions at German universities.
The overall coordination of the INTEGRATE-HTA project lies with the Department of Health Services Research. The department is part of the Institute of Public Health and Nursing Research at the Faculty of Human and Health Sciences. Research in the department is focused on the development of conceptual and methodological approaches to contribute to evidence based health care (EbHC), patient orientated approaches, the assessment of complex interventions and health care services. Staffs of the Department of Health Service Research have long-standing experience in health technology assessment (HTA), as partners in EUNetHTA, EUNetHTA JA and the German Agency for Health Technology Assessment. With the Institute of Information, Health and Medical Law at the Faculty of Law, there is also extensive expertise on the assessment of legal issues in HTAs at the University of Bremen.
