Collaborative partners & advisory group

Advisory group

In order to have an advisory body in relation to the research, we have since 2010 had an advisory group that:

  • contributes to the further development of the research strategy
  • advises on new research projects
  • establishes and develops both national and international research networks
  • recruits new researchers
  • mentors, advises and supervises students and younger researchers
  • further develops a research database

 All the members of the advisory group have experience in transcultural psychiatry and/or in clinical research on psychiatric patients with different ethnic background than Danish. The consultant responsible for the research at CTP chairs the group, which has four annual meetings.
