The Innovation Committee at the G-BA

The Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) is tasked with promoting research projects on more far-reaching, improved forms of care and healthcare. External experts advise the G-BA's Innovation Committee on the priorities and criteria for awarding funding.

At the end, the funded projects are evaluated and, if necessary, translated into recommendations for transferring the approaches and findings gained into standard care. The positive transfer recommendations made in this way are forwarded in a targeted manner to organizations and institutions in the health care system so that they can be taken into account within their area of responsibility.
