CRIC’s History

Centre for Research in Intensive Care (CRIC) opened in February 2015 funded by a research centre grant from the Innovation Fund Denmark.

CRIC was the result of a collaboration between clinical researchers at intensive care units (ICU), trialists, biostatistics and health economic researchers, all with the focus to improve the care and treatment of ICU patients.

The grant supported CRICs infrastructure and five programs, of which three were clinical trials testing frequently used interventions in ICU (pantoprazole, oxygen and haloperidol) over 7-year span.

Each of the 5 partners developed their focus area by performing clinical trials, systematic reviews, improved biostatistical methods and health economic analyses.

CRIC and its partners has expanded its network to collaborate with researchers globally when performing the clinical trial programs.
