The Lusatian Center for Digital Public Health at the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU) is researching the opportunities and risks of the digital further development of healthcare in the region. People's health is closely linked to the circumstances in which they grow up and live. Digital health services are becoming increasingly relevant in everyday life. They hold potentials, but also risks in terms of disease prevention, health promotion and health care. In collaboration with the Leibniz ScienceCampus Digital Public Health, scientists at the new Lusatian Center for Digital Public Health (LauZeDiPH) in Senftenberg are researching these aspects for the population in Lusatia.
Laura Maaß is speaker of the Digital Public Health working group of the German Public Health Association (DGPH).
Collaboration with the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) intensifies, including joint conference workshops. Exchange with the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the WHO Digital Health Strategy is actively deepened. LSC DiPH is progressively enhancing international staff recruitment efforts. Furthermore, data generated from our projects are shared globally through the NFDI4Health consortium.
As an added dimension, we have initiated cross-Leibniz ScienceCampus collaboration, notably with LSC Ruhr's "Challenges in Healthcare". Collaborative seminars and exploratory projects are already on the horizon. This nascent partnership holds the potential for further expansion, possibly encompassing the Leibniz ScienceCampus Postdigital Participation in Braunschweig (LSC PDP).
