Health, nutrition and environment
Research into people’s health and their environment
Health research is important for all of us. Everyone wants to stay healthy and, when illness strikes, we do whatever it takes to get well. The need to keep medical care affordable for all is also a central socio-political issue. Nutrition and the environment also play a major role in human health along with healthcare. Together, these factors constitute the key objectives of current Fraunhofer research in the area of environmental and life sciences.
