The objectives of the graduate programme are
- to improve cooperation between universities and the pharmaceutical industry and establish a more formal and extended cooperation between research groups and supervisory environments in Danish universities involved in in vivo pharmacology,
- to help ensure that the research environments and competences of the pharmaceutical industry are used to provide perspectives on and inspire innovation in individual PhD projects as well as for the specialist areas involved,
- to help ensure that the PhD students have the opportunity to regard their own research effort as an integral part of the innovation in pharmaceutical research, from the initial concept to the final product,
- to function as a network for the PhD students to make it easier for them to establish contact with experts inside and outside their own research environment.
