The Danish Air Ambulance strives to establish collaborations with national and international research groups within relevant research areas. It is expected that collaborations with other institutions will develop concurrently with the implementation of specific projects.

International collaborations

From the beginning of the research organisation, under the auspices of the Danish Air Ambulance, it has been important to enter into international collaborations. At present, the Danish Air Ambulance actively participates in EUPHOREA (European Prehospital Research Alliance), which is a European research collaboration.

Nordic collaborations

In addition, close Nordic cooperation has been established between the HEMS organisations in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The collaboration goes under the name NoPRA (Nordic Prehospital Research Alliance). The aim is to strengthen research in the pre-hospital area in collaboration between the Nordic services.

Collaboration on data

The Danish Air Ambualnce has its own database on all missions since its beginning in 2014. Data can be provided for research as part of collaboration with the Danish Air Ambulance, see under research - data sources.

The Danish Air Ambulance also collaborates with the other pre-hospital networks in Denmark and submits data to the Pre-hospital Patient Journal (PPJ). A subset of PPJ data is also included in the RKKP Prehospital database (, which contains data on clinical care pathways.
