Research Fund

Why?
Gastrointestinal and liver diseases are common in children and nutrition is of
foremost importance in healthy infants and children as well. However, there is too
little research in this area. This is the reason why we wanted to set up a Danish
research fund.

Purpose of the research fund
The aim is to improve the diagnostic efforts, children's quality of life and disease
treatment through research into children's gastrointestinal and liver diseases as well
as nutrition. This will be done primarily by supporting younger clinical researchers as
well as disseminating knowledge about the field.

Idea
The initiative was created in connection with the European Society for Paediatric
Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) Congress in Copenhagen
2022. We will establish the research fund within the auspices of the Danish Society
for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (DaSPGHaN). The statutes
of the fund will be transparent and subject to scrutiny by a certified accountant.
 
As a natural sequence of events the fund will be established in connection with
DaSPGHaN's general assembly on September 26, 2022.
