The mission of the Danish Cardiovascular Academy is:

  • To strengthen Danish cardiovascular research
  • To give young researchers an advantageous career take-off (PhD positions, training and courses)
  • To create a unique network for participating researchers across disciplines
    To stimulate collaboration and interaction across disciplines within the cardiovascular field

The DCAcademy will be offering more than 100 PhD, PostDoc positions, travelling grants and visiting grants.

A vital part of this effort is also to create a unique network for participating researchers across disciplines. Courses, project days, summer schools etc. will be means to ensure the enhancement of a cardiovascular network in Denmark beyond disciplines within the cardiovascular field.

The DCAcademy will be openminded towards research areas:

"We will not be pointing out particular areas of research which we will support. Nobody can tell how and where a major scientific breakthrough will occur. However, our hope is that we will experience research of high quality which will make a difference."
