Purpose and Activities

The purpose of the foundation is to provide financial support for research or development in the field of acute medicine. Funding priorities include the diagnosis, treatment, and transport of patients with an acute, life-threatening disease or injury. The term encompasses all phases of life support, from the onset of symptoms or the infliction of injury until the patient is stabilized in a non-critical condition. Suitable projects may include experimental or clinical studies, development of teaching and training procedures, improvements of patient transport, and publication of clinical data. Special consideration is given to projects related to pre-hospital emergency care.
