Useful knowledge on the Guidance Function’s website

The Guidance Function offers first-level guidance on the requirements and permissions needed when applying for health data.

As a part of our services, we would like to create an overview of the knowledge, support and guidance available for researchers on a regional and national level.

Therefore, at the beginning of 2023, we created a new feature on our website, which is an overview of some of the offers, and services that are available for researchers, clinicians and other interested parties who are working with research and health data.

The feature is called, Overview of research-related agencies, and contains contact information for agencies in Denmark, both regionally and nationally within the following areas:

  • Laws, agreements and approvals
  • Research support units, project management, guidance and secretaries
  • Libraries
  • Data og statistics
  • Funding and financial guidance

You can find the feature on the Guidance Function’s website: Overview of research-related agencies | Vejledningsfunktionen.

The agencies and authorities have participated in the information gathering. If you have not been contacted by the Guidance Function, but think your agency would be suitable for this list, please contact us at

The Guidance Function services are free for both public and private clinicians and researchers, Danish as well as foreign.
