Resource of the future
Initiative "Data Airport"

Data is the resource of the future. The city of Frankfurt has an excellent IT infrastructure and with DE- CIX houses the largest commercial network nodes in the world. A "data airport for health" could make use of these advantages and create a central platform for medical knowledge..  

The Idea

The health industry is recording more and more personalized data; due to its decentralized availability, its potential has so far not been exhausted. An aggregation of knowledge could contribute to making more precise diagnostics and to developing new therapies. At the same time, an internationally successful high-tech infrastructure for storage and processing of medical data could be developed at the Frankfurt location.

The Success

The data airport would be a huge step forward for medical research and development. At the same time, it could promote new digital business models and position Frankfurt as a big-data site and international data hub. 

The Implementation

The kick-off event for the data airport took place in September 2015. FiZ has since been able to attract several high-level partners from industry, science, and politics for the initiative.
