What is BayFoNet about?

In order to strengthen clinical research projects in general practice, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding the establishment of the Bavarian Research Network in General Medicine (BayFoNet). BayFoNet is supported by four Bavarian institutes for general medicine at the locations of the University Hospital Würzburg, the Ludwig-Maximilians-University and the Technical University Munich as well as the University Hospital Erlangen. The goal is to establish a sustainable, dynamic network of research practices for family physicians in Bavaria.

What are the goals of BayFoNet?

Good research needs proximity to practice and people. In the planning and conception of studies and in ongoing research processes, scientists depend on the critical and constructive views of family physicians, medical assistants and citizens. This is exactly where BayFoNet comes in: A network of family doctor research practices and university institutions of general medicine in Bavaria is to be established in order to improve networking and cooperation between university, family doctor practice and citizens.

More information about our offers for physicians and MFAs can be found in the tab Offers of BayFoNet or you can register for one of our current events.

Citizens who are interested in getting involved in projects of the research department and in advising the researchers are cordially invited to join the citizens' advisory board.
