The project P.I.L.O.T. (PrecisionMedicine | Innovations | LifeScience | Opportunities | Technologies) aims at the establishment of a network addressing innovations in digitisation of precision medicine within Schleswig-Holstein and the cluster Life Science Nord. All parts of the health sector shall be involved and the project does not only approaches digitisation itself, e.g. analysis of patient data, and its use in precision medicine. Of cause also solutions from medTech, biotech and pharma offering individual adaption without usage of digital components are parts of precision medicine. The project increases strength and interdisciplinarity in Northern Germany.
Regarding the health system, not only the dialogue between science and economy is extremely important. Implementation of therapeutic approaches into physician’s practice, involvement of regulatory authorities, reimbursement systems and patient organisations have to be tackled early within the innovation process.
Industry should be prepared for precision medicine for the future and enter collaborations with researchers and other parts of the health system at an early stage to stay competitive. Due to the complex structure of the overall system, it is often not easy to analyse and rate frame conditions and to adapt internal innovation processes alone, especially for SME. A network and multiplier like P.I.L.O.T. is able to support and pave those ways.
Identification of challenges and approaches to finding solutions with the core goal of economic development. Validation and discussion of results via feedback loop structures between participating sectors of the network and the health system. Generation of test beds or cooperation projects through the network.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and by the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein.
