The Region of Southern Denmark and OUH strives to increase collaboration with hospitals and researchers abroad with the aim of increasing the rate of development, the volume and quality of research as well as introducing new clinical methods to the benefit of treatment of patients. Consequently, in e.g. its research strategy, OUH has prioritised international collaboration as a focus area.
The OUH Internationalisation Fund is established in order to strengthen research initiatives within all specialities. With the fund, OUH is able to co-finance international research stays and stays for learning new clinical methods with the aim of developing international research networks and/or developing diagnostic methods and methods for treatment for OUH employees and visits from researchers and clinicians to OUH. Treatment is used in the broadest sense. It includes, for example, prevention, assessment, diagnosis, care, follow-up, rehabilitation, and palliation.
Through on-going exchange and affiliation of research related know-how and manpower, it is OUH’s aim via funding from The OUH Internationalisation Fund to strengthen and develop:
- Participation from OUH in international research networks.
- New diagnostic and treatment methods including, for example, prevention, assessment, diagnosis, care, follow-up, rehabilitation, and palliation as well as innovative technologies.
- Opportunities for constructing additional elite research centres.
- Opportunities for attracting and retain the best research talents.
