Welcome to BERTI
Biomedical Imaging & Informatics - European Research and Training Initiative
Technology in healthcare is all about working across distinct disciplines.
Cultural gaps have to be overcome. BERTI reaches across these traditional borders between different disciplines and embraces multidisciplinary collaboration in every dimension. BERTI is an interdisciplinary and intersectoral European network of computer scientists, natural scientists, engineers, clinicians, and partners from industry, meeting the objectives of the EU Innovation Union “to attract and train young people to become researchers and offer internationally competitive research careers to keep them in Europe and attract the best from abroad.”
A multidisciplinary and international setting can only be as good as the people involved. BERTI is very proud to be associated with highly motivated ESRs as well as Partners, who are pursuing a cross-cultural approach. Between industry and university, between medicine, informatics, physics and engineering, BERTI ESRs get the whole picture and lead research into the future. BERTI aims to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative ESRs, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit.
Building upon TUM's former GSISH, now Graduate School of Bioengineering (GSB), each ESR (Early Stage Researcher) within the BERTI training programme is assigned two scientific supervisors as well as a mentor from the research center of the industry partner GE Global Research located at the TUM-Campus Garching, ensuring perfect training for both an academic and an industry career.
BERTI is an European Network installed within the FP7 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) scheme.Read more about BERTI's background here.
BERTI is funded by the European Commission under Grant Agreement Number 605162.
