The partnership

Greater Copenhagen Health Science Partners is a partnership between University of Copenhagen, Technical University of Copenhagen, Region Zealand and the Capital region of Denmark. The partnership is established to strengthen the cooperation between researchers in basic laboratories and clinical researchers in the hospitals.

University researchers and clinical researchers can use GCHSP to learn from each other and develop new ideas, resulting both in faster scientific results and better treatment of patients.

A strong collaboration between university and hospitals shall create breakthroughs within near-patient health research and facilitate increased cooperation with the business community, creating more jobs in the Healthcare industry.

At the same time, the research result will raise the level of education among university graduates employed in the healthcare system.
