Research funding and career
Cooperation with the university, industry and other types of research and educational institutions forms a natural part of activities at a university hospital. Extensive research, development and education activities are part of daily work at most units of the hospital in collaboration with the Sahlgrenska Academy. Sound financing is essential for carrying out research and education.
ALF (Agreement on Medical Education and Research)
