At different times in 2019, the German Federal Ministry of Health received a Serbian and a Czech delegation of experts in the fields of rare disease research and care. Scenarium was commissioned by the Ministry to plan and implement the visits and associated study tours. The experts were given the opportunity to get to know the German health system during their one-week stays in Germany, with a focus on the care of patients with rare diseases. The most important institutions and organisations in the health system were visited and Scenarium created numerous opportunities to meet with German experts in research centres and health care institutions, policymakers and civil society platforms. The aim of the expert visits was to promote cross-border networking and cooperation.
Michael Thiede guided the tours and facilitated the numerous meetings.
I was amazed by the impressions conveyed to me by the members of the delegation of the Republic of Serbia. By this I mean the professionalism and dedication you have demonstrated both in preparation and during this study visit … .
The experiences and knowledge gained on this study tour will be important for the future work of our experts and their institutions and Serbia. …
We would like to sincerely appreciate the high professionalism, thoroughness and in particular kindness of Prof. Thiede who together with his team prepared for us a memorable stay in Berlin. We all highly recommend Scenarium GmbH for exchange initiatives of this kind.
