The Confucius Institute in Aalborg not only tries to promote Chinese language and culture in Denmark, but also works on strengthening exchange on medical research between Denmark and China.
On this note, the CI has played a crucial part in reaching an cooperation and exchange agreement between the Affiliated Hospital of Ningxia Medical University and Aalborg Hospital. Already in the fall of 2011 highly specialised heart surgeons from Aalborg Hospital will go to Ningxia in order to perform surgery on Chinese patients while at the same time training Chinese colleagues in new surgery techniques.
Furthermore, besides exchange of Chinese and Danish staff, the two hospitals work on joint research projects.
