Testing medical devices in Denmark

Access to and collaboration with relevant clinical environments are crucial aspects in developing and testing new medical devices. Clinical Trials Office Denmark works to ensure easier access for medical device companies to hospitals all over Denmark



Clinical Trials Office Denmark works to facilitate matchmaking and create better access for medical device companies to Danish hospitals and clinical environments. The office is established by Denmark’s five healthcare regions.Medical device companies can draw on Clinical Trials Office Denmark to:

  • gain initial access to all health regions in Denmark
  • establish contact to healthcare innovation units in all health regions
  • build connections to relevant hospital units
  • create the basis for testing new solutions in a clinical environment
  • initiate dialogue with relevant clinical units/staff
  • obtain access to national negotiation of contracts
  • gain information on the conduct of clinical trials (medical devices) in Denmark.

One of Clinical Trials Office Denmark’s task is to provide easier access for medical device companies to relevant clinical environments. Medical companies seeking dialogue, or wishing to initiate co-operation with a hospital, will only need to refer to one institution in each region. From here they will be assisted in ascertaining available options, and they will be matched to the appropriate clinical departments.

Innovative medical devices provide a means of delivering better health. The Danish health regions have established Clinical Trials Office Denmark to help the medical companies gain better access to clinical environments. This will provide the essential opportunity for them to receive feedback from potential users of new products, conduct tests at an early stage, and undertake clinical trials of a fully developed product.
