Medical Advisory Board
All work related to prehospital research (grant application evaluation, abstract awards, courses etc.) is done by our independent Medical Advisory Board. The work of the Medical Advisory Board is essential to the Falck Foundation. The members of the Medical Advisory Board makes recommendations to the Governing council about funding of research projects.
The Medical Advisory Board is independent from Falck, and consist of a number of active international researchers. The independence from Falck means that Falck does not interfere with decisions about what research projects the Board would like to support, either in the form of research grants or abstract awards.

All day-to-day work in the Falck Foundation is handled by the Secretariat. These work tasks includes administrative work related to the handling of research applications, and communications with researchers, Medical Advisory Board and Governing Council.
