On April 10th we had a MIRACUM kick-off meeting in Freiburg, where we took the opportunity to present MIRACUM to around 100 clinicians and other employees from the Medical Center and University of Freiburg. After nice welcoming words from the MIRACUM Freiburg PI PD Dr. Martin Boeker, the Director of the Medical Center Prof. Dr.Dr.h.c.mult. Jörg Rüdiger Siewert and the Vice Dean of the Medical Faculty Freiburg Prof. Dr. Norbert Südkamp, the overall structure and architecture of MIRACUM and the data integration center was introduced. Two guests from the MIRACUM consortium were among the speakers: MIRACUM consortium lead Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Prokosch from Erlangen and Prof. Dr. Thomas Ganslandt from Mannheim.
