Unique regulatory environment
Why Copenhagen is the centre of regulatory affairs research and education in Europe
A key pillar is the Copenhagen Centre for Regulatory Science (CORS) which is based at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen. CORS is a key international partner for academic leadership in regulatory science, research and education. CORS has a strong academic foundation and a unique infrastructure involving multiple university faculties (Health, Law, Humanities and Social Sciences) as well as industry partners, medicines authorities and patient organisations.
CORS is also one of the driving forces behind the Master of Medicines Regulatory Affairs at the University of Copenhagen, offered in collaboration with Medicademy. This university programme is unique in its format as it joins practice-based knowledge and experience from industry and authority experts, with an interdisciplinary regulatory science approach from leading university researchers. This is ensured by a close collaboration with Medicademy(an independent course and training-unit of the Danish Association of the Pharmaceutical Industry) and with other European universities (University of Basel, University of Hertfordshire and King's College London). CORS together with Medicademy have a close connection to the experts in the pharmaceutical industry and the medicines agencies in Europe and rest of the world.
The MRA collaboration attracts regulatory affairs course participants from all over the world (32 countries, not only Europe), and a strong collaboration has been developed with regulatory agencies from among others several Central and Eastern European countries.
CORS, Medicademy and the Master of Medicines Regulatory Affairs at the University of Copenhagen are prime examples of successful public-private collaborations that make Copenhagen the centre of regulatory affairs research and education in Europe.
