d) Other purposes to further collaboration with international hospitals and researchers including activities in Denmark with an international scope (provisional while restrictions on travel activities due to COVID-19).

Financial support may be granted to other purposes which will increase collaboration with researchers and clinicians at international hospitals and research institutions.


With the aim of developing international research networks and/or developing diagnostic methods and methods for treatment including, for example, prevention, assessment, diagnosis, care, follow-up, rehabilitation, and palliation it is possible to apply for financial support for visits from international researchers and clinicians. 


  • Activities related to attracting international researchers.
  • Activities related to drawing up applications for funding in collaboration with international researchers.
  • Activities in Denmark with an international scope (provisional opportunity while restrictions on travel activities due to COVID-19).

Restrictions are imposed on some travel activities and destinations due to COVID-19. As an alternative to travel to and from Denmark, it has been decided that researchers and clinicians may apply the OUH Internationalisation Fund for activities in Denmark with and international scope e.g.:

  • Inviting researchers living in Denmark to prepare participation in international research projects or research conferences.
  • Arrange research workshops with international online participation of a maximum of 25 participants in Denmark.
  • Hosting webinars with international adjunct professors at OUH/SDU or other relevant international collaborators.

Funding for activities in Denmark with an international scope will cease when COVID-19 no longer has a significant impact on travel activities.

In all cases, activities must demonstrate an obvious opportunity for increasing the rate of development, research volume, and quality for the benefit of patient treatment.
