About the CCR in Västerås

The CCR was established in 1999 through an agreement between Uppsala University and the then Västmanland County Council. The collaboration applied to research, training of researchers, and the basic education of medical students. The agreement strengthens research in Västmanland, and the clinical base of Uppsala University broadens, which improves conditions for both research and basic training. Activities are followed up every three years.   

The CCR is part of the Centre for Health and Healthcare Development, under the responsibility of the Health and Medical Director in Region Västmanland. The daily work of the CCR is lead by the Centre´s Head and Director and is supported by the CCR Board, consisting of representatives from both Uppsala University and Region Västmanland. The CCR Board meets twice a year.
