Financing and acknowledgements

The Danish Dementia Research Centre was established in 2007 on fundings from “the Health Insurance Foundation” and “the Danish Ministry of Health and Prevention”.

The DDRC’s total annual budget was approximately DKK 56,2 m, distributed almost evenly between internal funding (DKK 26.8 m for memory clinic services) and external grants (DKK 29.4 m for research, contracts and educational activities).

In addition, the memory clinic received a separate grant of DKK 20,5 m from the Danish Ministry of Health via Capital Region of Denmark, dedicated to the merge and quality assurance of memory clinics in Denmark, a National Dementia Plan initiative for 2017-2019.

In 2016 the National Info & Education Centre for Dementia received a DKK 19 m grant from the Danish Ministry of Health for 2017-2020, expanding its annual government funding to eight million kroner. This grant was made permanent as of 2017.
