Annual cooperation projects take place as part of the project to develop National Diabetes Surveillance at the Robert Koch Institute. These methodological studies use secondary and register data and are carried out in cooperation with university and non-university institutions. The projects aim to test the suitability of existing data sources for diabetes surveillance and to close existing data gaps. The German Federal Ministry of Health funds the implementation of cooperation projects by the Robert Koch Institute.
