The Charité is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. About 3700 doctors and scientists heal, do research and teach at the top international level. More than half of the German Nobel Prize winners in medicine and physiology come from the Charité, among them Emil von Behring, Robert Koch and Paul Ehrlich. The Charité also has an international reputation for excellence in training. It extends over four campuses with more than 100 clinics and institutes bundled under 17 Charité Centers.
With numerous Collaborative Research Centres (CRC) of the German Research Foundation, it is one of Germany’s most research-intensive medical institutions.
The G-WAC is one of the eight new DAAD-funded Global Centres for Climate and Health to be established across low- and middle-income countries to address global challenges with funding from the German Foreign Office.
