With the neighbouring Max-Planck, Helmholtz, and Technical University institutions, it can be regarded as a major European life science hub. LMU is a distinguished beneficiary of the German excellence initiative and has hosted in total more than 90 ERC grants. In the Seventh EU Framework Programme LMU was recipient of 225 projects, in 22 of which it is/was the coordinating institution. In Horizon2020 the LMU has already received more than 150 grants.

The Institute for Emergency Medicine and Management in Medicine (Institut für Notfallmedizin und Medizinmanagement, INM) was founded in 2001 and the first such institute in Germany to focus on academic research and training/teaching in emergency and acute medicine.

It has over 15 years of experience in providing simulation training in every acute and emergency care setting (pre- and in-hospital), as well as in participating in the scientific development and research of new simulation modalities. All work will be done in the simulation centre of the INM, combining realistic clinical and preclinical medical surroundings with an advanced technological infrastructure.

The Human Simulation Center (HSC) includes areas for simulation, debriefing and medical education which are included in the institute building at the university hospital campus.

The Institute’s staff is affiliated with the Society for Simulation in Europe SESAM (currently President), with the German Simulation Society DGSim (currently Vicepresident) and the Society for Simulation in Healthcare SSH.
