The Coordinating Body for Registry Research (KOR)
The Coordinating Body for Register Research shall contribute to creating greater coherence and coordination around both Danish and internationally related research activities concerning registers, databases and survey data.
KOR works with three long-term focus areas:
- Improve the dialogue between data controllers and researchers and help to ensure that research resources in registry research are used as efficiently as possible and that inappropriate barriers are avoided.
- Create a constructive dialogue between researchers and the outside world, disseminate knowledge about activities in the field to the researchers and collect the wishes and issues that arise from the research world.
- Strengthening Danish register research by taking initiatives that contribute to improving the framework for research, and by creating awareness of the conditions and potential of Danish register research for society.
Many public authorities make register data available to researchers under different conditions, KOR works to make access to data as simple as possible. KOR holds i.a. courses and conferences that equip researchers to work safely and professionally with registry data.
KOR consists of active researchers from the research and university environments and communicates the interests of more than 3,000 users of the Danish registries.
