Why apply to become a CAG?

A CAG must promote excellent research to improve patient care.

By establishing a CAG, you and your colleagues help to bring together clinics, research, education and continuing education across universities and hospitals. In this way, you can increase the quality of the research and put the latest research into practice faster for the benefit of the patients.

With the support of the GCHSP, CAGs gain effective access to assistance from the partner organisations’ support functions to establish strong cross-cutting collaboration between research and clinical practice.

Who can apply?

GCHSP consists of four strong partner organisations within the health area. University of Copenhagen, the Capital Region of Denmark, the Technical University of Denmark and Region Zealand.

Each CAG must have a chairmanship consisting of a CAG chairman and a CAG vice chairman. The two persons making up the chairmanship must have different main employments (regional and academic, respectively). All four partner organisations must be represented in the CAG, either in the CAG chairmanship or through key members.

Since June 12, 2017, GCHSP has worked for excellent research with a faster implementation of research results in clinical practice. We do this, among other things, by strengthening collaboration across regions and universities through a number of Clinical Academic Groups (CAGs). In 2018, the collaboration expanded from 2 to 4 partner organisations and today a total of 12 CAGs have been appointed.
