  • Recent years have seen an explosion in health data generation from diverse sources. This data has the potential to help advance both research and patient care. However, accessing, integrating, and analyzing it is exceptionally challenging. IDERHA aims to set up an open platform that will facilitate the integration and analysis of diverse types of health data. The platform will link up multiple public and private data sources and implement interoperable tools and services to enable key groups, such as doctors, patients, and researchers, to use the data. To focus their efforts, the IDERHA team will use lung cancer as a use case to design the platform.

    A further increase in the performance of supercomputers is expected over the next few years. So-called exascale computers will then be able to deliver more accurate simulation results. Fraunhofer SCAI is developing efficient data analysis methods for the much larger amounts of data generated in this way, which will also provide the engineer with detailed insights into the complex technical interrelationships.

  • Pioneer – open Innovation Platform for optimizing production systems

    EU-Project / Project start / January 01, 2023

    PIONEER aims to develop and implement an interoperable material modeling and manufacturing ecosystem that enables multi-directional data flow along the material value chain by linking product design and distributed modeling data with information from material characterization, manufacturing processes, and product quality criteria. PIONEER combines a design-by-simulation approach with manufacturing and quality data to optimize product development strategies in high-mix/low-volume production systems.

  • Service center "WestAI"

    BMBF-Project / Project start / November 01, 2022

    The service center "WestAI" is a consortium of scientific organizations in North Rhine-Westphalia led by the University of Bonn. The services offered to customers from science and industry include support in the processing of data, in the transfer of AI technologies, in preliminary research and in the development of prototypes and customer-specific AI solutions.

  • The PADME-AM, »Partition der Eins Methoden für Additive Manufacturing« (Partition of One Methods for Additive Manufacturing), project is developing new simulation methods for 3D printing processes in the field of laser-based powder bed fusion (L-PBF). L-PBF processes offer the possibility of printing complex components with high quality and low weight for the medical and aerospace industries.

  • Patients with severe psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and clinical depression often develop resistance to drug therapy. Even when the early signs of treatment resistance (TR) are detected, patients must undergo lengthy procedures before medical professionals can prescribe adequate pharmaceutical care. The EU-funded Psych-STRATA project intends to analyse extensive clinical, genetic and biological data of psychiatric patients to establish criteria for early detection of TR. Based on the findings, it will propose treatment strategies for patients at risk of TR. The project will further create machine learning models that can predict TR risk and patient response to treatment, thus assisting medical professionals in providing more personalised treatment.
