The Intersectoral Prevention Laboratory

The Intersectoral Prevention Laboratory (TIPL) was initiated in 2018 by the Danish Regions (an interest organization for the five regions in Denmark) with the aim of strengthening collaboration and intersectoral partnerships in public health promotion and prevention. TIPL is a non-profit public initiative run by a joint secretariat between Center for Clinical Research and Prevention, Frederiksberg Hospital, and Steno Health Promotion, Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen.

TIPL facilitates that partners and organizations from different sectors can meet and develop intersectoral partnership projects on prevention and health promotion.  To be an eligible TIPL project, the projects need to address 'real world problems' in the public health or clinical practice. Furthermore, they need to include an evaluation with a focus on both implementation processes and outcomes.

TIPL offers a bank of resources, consisting of researchers, fundraisers and statisticians providing support with intervention and evaluation design, data analysis, fundraising, partnership facilitation, mobilizing partners. Although TIPL provides organizational and research support it does not run nor fund projects.

Partner: Centre for Clinical Research and Prevention, Frederiksberg Hospital.
