Letz strengthen patient safety together

CAMES is continuously developing collaborative relationships with forward-thinking healthcare professionals, hospitals, medical and tech companies, organizations, universities, foundations and other simulation entities at home and abroad. Our internationally recognized and experienced profile has translated over the years into external collaborations, joint projects and partnerships. Collaborative relationships that have the common mantra and fixed point that:

"You have to practice before you perform procedures on patients."

In other words, it is about developing and offering simulation-based training, education and services that enhance the quality of patient care - and thus also support patient safety.
It is CAMES' ambition to expand its portfolio of collaborative projects in the future, and this will happen while we continuously move into new and broader scaled collaborative relationships with external partners. Please reach out to us if you are curious to know more.

Simulation with others

Types of cooperation


Cooperation on simulation services
A collaboration with CAMES can be adapted to your needs. For example, we can develop new educational programmes, train your healthcare professionals in simulation, use proven testing facilities, develop new practices, send you products from our Phantom Design Lab, test new technology or disseminate best practice in a field.

Public-Private Projects (PPP)

Whether you represent a private company or a public organisation does not determine whether cooperation with CAMES could be relevant. CAMES has always worked across sectors - and has built up many different Public-Private Projects and partnerships over the years. Cross-sectoral interaction will only become a higher priority in the future - among other things in relation to strengthening the whole business PhD area.

Use of CAMES test facilities

If you would like to test new medical equipment, CAMES has a good track record of setting up dedicated training rooms, taking advantage of its proximity to clinical practice and its research-based training expertise. In the same spirit, we are also happy to make our testing facilities available. For example, operating theatres, test beds, etc., so that you can test ideas in close interaction with the healthcare professionals who will use them in the future.

Advice at the highest level

If you want to take care of development, implementation and more yourself, you can also buy CAMES' advice and consultancy for limited parts of your work. We already help a number of players to design, implement and evaluate courses and skills development - just as we carry out consultancy tasks and provide advice at various levels in public and private companies both in Denmark and abroad.

Universities and research environments
If you choose to work with CAMES, the activities will almost always be research-based. And while CAMES has strong researchers employed in a number of fields, we like to go elsewhere, so we always use the very best. This means that as a CAMES partner, you will also benefit from the close university collaborations we have at CAMES.

Public/Private Cooperation
Over the years, CAMES has built up a portfolio of various public-private projects and partnerships. In general, engagement with private industry, organisations and external public entities has high strategic priority, including a focus on the establishment of a business PhD track.

We undertake consultancy assignments at various levels for public and private entities. Advice and consultancy services relate to all areas of activity in CAMES.

Learning technology and e-learning
As part of the Capital Region's Simulation and Learning Technology Unit, CAMES naturally works very closely with the Learning Technology Section - also known as RegionH E-learning. This collaboration is also brought into play when CAMES continuously works to strengthen cooperation between medical simulation centres at home and abroad. Some of the areas CAMES has collaborated in so far include:
  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Ultrasound
  • Eye surgery
  • Ear surgery
  • Colonoscopy
  • Birthmark Diagnostics
  • Robotic Surgery
Facilitating international simulation training
CAMES collaborates internationally with industry and clinical specialties on course design, practical delivery and assessments. The facility invites industry - such as leading medical device manufacturers - to set up their own state-of-the-art training rooms. This is while working closely with our research-based training capabilities.
