News from the Research Centre

The Danish Research Center for Chemical Sensitivities is closing

The financial means from the Danish Ministry of the Environment/Environmental Protection Agency to the Research Center will teminate by the end of 2013.

Since 2006 the Danish Research Center for Chemical Sensitivities has received funding from the Danish Ministry of the Environment/Environmental Protection Agency through the Danish Chemical Action Plan. During the political negotiations on the next Danish action plan covering the period from 2014 to 2017 it was decided not to extend the funding to the Research Center.

 

The pronounced interest of the Danish Ministry of the Environment/Environmental Protection Agency for multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) has so far made major contributions to the current knowledge in this field. To establish a Danish Research Centre for Chemical Sensitivities has proven to be a unique and important initiative with international impact, and an expert evaluation drawn up in 2012 concluded that Denmark occupies a pre-eminent position in this field.

 

A large network of both national and Nordic partners from scientific institutions within e.g., epidemiology, public health, pain research, psychology, immunology and genetics, occupational medicine and dermatology has made invaluable contributions to the ongoing research at the Research Center and has made it possible to bring the field forward.


On the initiative of the Research Center´s Expert monitoring group, a new classification code for MCS was published in the Danish healthcare classification system in 2012.


Despite great efforts to keep the Research Center and to continue a strong Danish contribution to research in MCS, including from the Danish patient organization, the Research Center will close by the end of 2013.
