A nonprofit organization


Making health data ready for research

Data4Life is a nonprofit organization working towards its vision of a world where health data is comprehensively, digitally, and securely available for research and directly impacts the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. At Data4Life’s locations in Potsdam, Berlin and Singapore, the international team of over 100 people of more than 30 different nationalities is working to turn this vision into reality.

In collaboration with leading public health institutions, esteemed medical experts, and renowned research facilities throughout the world, Data4Life specifically works to digitalize health research. Therefore, the organization’s efforts are focused on two core areas: public health and personalized medicine.

Data privacy and data security are always prioritized.




Projects and Studies

In various projects, Data4Life collaborated with partners such as the Robert Koch Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin or the Fraunhofer Institute HHI. In addition, Data4Life is a consortium partner in the EU-funded project Smart4Health and in the DAKI-FWS project, which is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

Public Health

In collaboration with the Robert Koch Institute, Data4Life optimizes the digital collection of epidemiological data and provides researchers with real-time access to standardized data sets via the transparency platform MEx.

As a consortium partner of the DAKI-FWS project (“Data- and AI-supported early warning system to stabilize the German economy”), Data4Life contributes to the early detection of future pandemics and natural disasters with the digital study DAKI Health.

Personalized Medicine

Together with renowned hospitals, Data4Life enables the development of central data platforms for AI-based clinical research.

In collaboration with the Hasso Plattner Institute for Digital Health at Mount Sinai (HPI.MS), Data4Life is developing the AI-enabled multimodal health data platform “AI-Ready Mount Sinai” (AIR.MS), which connects patient data, previously highly isolated and often difficult to access, from different clinical departments at Mount Sinai Hospital.
