German to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Medical: Health Care / Staatliche Förderung
German term or phrase:Verbundstruktur
When tenders are made for participation in pilot projects to be chosen for the sponsoring of independent patient advice organizations it is now a requirement that the organization can show it has "Verbundstruktur" but what is a "Verbundstruktur" for independent advice centres/organizations-"integrated structure" might be a translation but what does that really mean? This is almost more a request for clarification than translation. As always all suggestions and help much appreciated.
