Transport is a collaborative project of the BMBF-funding measure “Mathematics for Innovations in Industry and Services”.
HealthFaCT will be funded from December 01, 2016 to November 30, 2019.


The main goal of HealthFaCT is the development of an innovative and software-aided system for optimization and decision making to improve three essential pillars of medical care: pharmacies, emergency physicians as well as scheduling of ambulances. The main focus of this project lies on rural environments. Mathematical methodologies can make an important contribution in terms of data-driven facts rather than political argumentation. Detailed information about the contents of this project can be found here.
