Diagnostics Devices Drugs & Therapy Data


The project "DiagNET- Diagnostics of the Future" aims to develop and apply new diagnostic procedures in a competence network of business and science in the four-country region of Lake Constance and beyond. These are to be used in clinics but also in doctors' surgeries and laboratories on site, thus saving long journeys. This will significantly improve medical care in rural areas. The partners are jointly contributing services to the project - in research and development, production, testing and application as well as in sales. The DiagNET project is coordinated by BioLAGO e.V., the health network at the international Bodensee. the health network at the international Lake Constance.

Project stages and tasks

  • Establishment of a competence network "Diagnostics" consisting of companies, research institutions as well as clinics and laboratories
  • Development of new diagnostic procedures and optimisation of existing tests
  • Establishment of the competence network and testing of diagnostic procedures for application

The competence network continues to work even after the end of the project. The project "DiagNET- Diagnostics of the Future" is funded for three years by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the programme "Interreg V Alpenrhein-Bodensee-Hochrhein". The lead partner and funding recipient is BioLAGO e.V. Other project sponsors are the district of Constance and the city of Constance. der BioLAGO e.V. Weitere Projektförderer sind der Landkreis Konstanz und die Stadt Konstanz.
