Global Excellence

‘Global Excellence in Health’ is a high level development programme established by the Regional Council for the Capital Region of Denmark.
The Global Excellence programme is aimed at the hospitals and universities in the region and the primary goal is to support and promote internationally outstanding skilled professional environments in the region.

The development programme comprises the Global Excellence Award, which is awarded to a wide range of health environments at universities and hospitals in the Capital Region of Denmark.

World-class health

The award winners have presented internationally leading results within their field of basic research, studies and treatment, education, or clinical or translational research.

Together with the award come DKK 1.5 mill. that recipients can utilise over the next five years. The money makes it possible to arrange symposia, attract international researchers or develop their efforts in other ways.
