Key numbers about the project
A unique partnership
Rigshospitalet, in collaboration with the LEGO Foundation, is now investigating the connection between play and health for children and adolescents in hospitals. The research project is supported by a grant from the LEGO Foundation of DKK 4 million.
A new online platform collects ideas on how to use play in the treatment of children and adolescents. The goal is to help the patients better handle everything from blood tests to long term illnesses.
A grant of DKK 60 mill. (EUR 8 mill.) to BørneRiget from the Novo Nordisk Foundation means that three professors have been recruited at Rigshospitalet to secure a Danish lead within reconstructive surgery, foetal diagnostics and treatment of children with heart diseases.
