Local Coordination Unit (LCU)


The Local Coordination Unit (LCU) is part of the management line of the University Medicine Network. It is an essential organisational body that ensures the communication and exchange of the Oldenburg site with the subprojects and the central coordination unit (Charité-Unversitätsmedizin). The LokS are responsible for the coordination of all relevant activities of the NUM at the Oldenburg site and support the collaborative work in the cross-site projects and infrastructures.

The LCU is single point of contact for all local, NUM-associated topics and works closely with the researchers, cooperating hospitals and local institutions (e.g. MeDIC, ethics, data protection, ...).

Tasks of the LCU

2. Central coordination

3. Building a nation-wide Network
