Human First Symposium

At this event, you will hear about the projects developed within the Human First collaboration and how they work with implementing the new knowledge they gather.

Human First is a dynamic organization where we collaborate across universities, hospitals, municipalities, and university colleges. They serve as an umbrella for a wide range of initiatives that span somatic illness, mental health, rehabilitation, and education.

Target audience: All interested researchers and staff, who are either part of Human First or wish to learn more about Human First.


  • Welcome and status of Human First by the chairmanship
  • 'Enhanced cross-sectoral research-practice collaboration – the path to success in implementation?' Presentation by Tine Curtis, Head of the Center for Prevention in Practice, Local Government Denmark, Research Director in Aalborg Municipality, and Associate Professor at the University of Southern Denmark and Aalborg University.
