One of the main tasks of the BNITM is to conduct qualified research in the field of tropical medicine. This is to be supported by scientific events, teaching, training and further education as well as advice and care in the fields of infectious and tropical medicine.
To this end, we pursue an integrative approach and see cooperation as a central building block for our research success. In addition, we rely on continuous internal and external quality control and regularly adapt our research focuses and methods.
Ongoing optimisation of our infrastructure, systems, processes and quality is of course important to us. To this end, we make bureaucratic processes as lean and flexible as possible.
Sharing and applying knowledge
Our scientific data and results are public, transparent and accessible free of charge. From our point of view, this offers an opportunity to make the most of their potential. In addition, we are in contact with industry in order to make the best possible use of the knowledge we generate and to transfer it into useful applications.
We also report on our research in a generally understandable manner, participate in public discussions and open our house to all sections of the population with various events. We regard our long history and high profile as both an opportunity and an obligation.
Support employees and students
In order to achieve our ambitious goals, we need outstanding and motivated employees. For this reason, we give every employee the opportunity to fully exploit their own potential through specific further training and individualised support services, and by ensuring relevant framework conditions. We prepare our students and young scientists in the best possible way for their future careers. To this end, we reflect on and optimise our understanding of leadership.
