When the Danish Chiropractor's Association (DKF) rejoined the European Chiropractor's Union (ECU), it was decided to establish a European research institute, the European Centre for Chiropractic Research Excellence (ECCRE), and place it at the Nordic Institute for Chiropractic and Clinical Biomechanics (NIKKB) in Odense, Denmark.

 

The aim of the new research institute is to contribute to further development and strengthening of musculoskeletal research in Europe. Placing the research institute at NIKKB will undoubtedly contribute towards that goal because of the possible synergies between researchers at NIKKB and ECCRE.

 

ECCRE was formally founded in connection with the ECU Convention in May 2016 in Oslo, Norway. The stakeholders ECU and DKF have appointed a board for ECCRE, consisting of two representatives from DKF and two from ECU. DKF appointed Lone Kousgaard Jørgensen and Michael Christensen to the board, while  Øystein Ogre, Chairman of ECU and Vasileios Gkolfinopoulos, Treasurer of ECU, were appointed by ECU.

 

Strategy, Policy and Bylaws

The CARL Fellows reveal this in their latest newsletter, which has just been released and the mental image of fellows working all the time illustrates the activity level in the group very well; all the fellows have been very busy since the release of the first newsletter in the summer of 2017.
