Report on external research funds at Danish hospitals


Report no. 7/2014

The report concerns the administration of external research funds at Danish hospitals. 

The objective of the report is to assess whether external research funds are administered in a satisfactory manner. The report answers the following questions: 

  • Are department managements adequately consulted when research projects are created at the hospitals?
  • Do the hospitals use research funds as intended and in accordance with the hospitals’ guidelines?
  • Do the regions and the Danish State Administration adequately supervise the hospitals’ management of research funds? 

Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in January 2014 at the request of the Danish Public Accounts Committee.
