Copenhagen Center for Health Technology : CACHET in Profile 2018

March 28, 2018

 

Intro to CACHET

 

CACHET was founded in 2015 as a strategic partnership between the Capital Region of Denmark (CRDK), the City of Copenhagen (CCPH), the Medical and Health Faculty at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

 

The governance model of CACHET consists of a steering group as its highest authority, a director responsible for daily management and a management group for strategic development and management. CACHET is a virtual research centre. This implies that there is a very lean centre staff consisting only of the centre director and a programme manager.

 

Research is done in collaborative research projects that span across a wide range of departments at the four partners. By the end of 2017, more than 90 researchers were affiliated with CACHET.

 

Interdisciplinary research center

 

The Copenhagen Centre for Health Technology (CACHET) is an interdisciplinary research center with a vision to promote and support healthy living, active ageing and chronic disease prevention and management through Personalised health technology. CACHET is inaugurated as a strategic partnership between the Capital Region of Denmark, the City of Copenhagen, the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark.

 

Excellent research

 

CACHET hosts and initiates a wide range of interdisciplinary research projects at the intersection of the technical and medical sciences, taking their outset in specific healthcare challenges in the Danish society. By coupling a user-centered research and innovation process with solid academic knowledge, the research focuses on application and impact.

 

Research training

 

The CACHET PhD programme funds and trains the health technology researchers of the future. Our competitive PhD programme is designed to foster problem-oriented, interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial research. Be it in academia, industry, society in general or in the clinic, these researchers will be the frontrunners in developing the technology-based healthcare model of the future.

 

Industrial innovation

 

Most of CACHET’s research is done with our 23 industrial partners. There is a strong focus on translating research into new technologies and products for commercial growth in the Danish life science industry. The CACHET innovation programme helps companies to work with top-class researchers in a flexible and pragmatic way.

 

Societal and healthcare innovation

 

By addressing major health challenges in the Danish society, CACHET research starts and ends with societal innovation. CACHET works to translate research into new technologies and healthcare services for the benefit of patients and the Danish healthcare system. This small book is made in order to provide an overview and status of the research, training and innovation of CACHET as it were at the end of 2017.

 

 

CACHET research
