The Copenhagen Centre for Regulatory Science (CORS)
We define Regulatory Science as "The science of developing new tools, standards and approaches to evaluate the efficacy, safety, quality and performance of medical products in order to assess benefit-risk and facilitate a sound and transparent regulatory decision making".
The Copenhagen Centre for Regulatory Science (CORS) aims at being the international partner for academic leadership in regulatory science, research and education and to participate in building the regulatory framework that will make innovative medicinal products available to patients.
The Copenhagen Centre for Regulatory Science will become a powerful Centre for Regulatory Science, influencing and conducting regulatory research and education in an international perspective. The research and education of the Centre makes a clear mark on regulatory decision-making – to the benefit of stakeholders such as patients, authorities, payers and industry.
The Copenhagen Centre for Regulatory Science (CORS) is based at and refers to the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen. In order to ensure a strong academic profile and a high degree of activity and visibility, a strengthened leadership of both an administrative manager and a full professor will head the Centre. Also, a Steering Committee and a Scientific Advisory Board have been established at the Centre.
The Steering Committee has been constituted by the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, and will support the establishment of the Centre and oversee the strategic, administrative and financial development of the Centre.
