European Centre for Chiropractic Research Excellence (ECCRE)

ECCRE is a European research centre established through a co-operation between the European Chiropractors' Union (ECU), the Danish Chiropractic Association (DKF) and the Nordic Institute of Chiropractic and Clinical Biomechanics (NIKKB)


The ECCRE is to become a European leader in facilitating research of relevance to the chiropractic profession and patients with musculoskeletal conditions.

The ECCRE is to establish an evidence-based foundation for the development of chiropractic principles and practice in the European Countries.

If you are a young researcher in MSK disease, you can now apply to become part of the next CARL (Chiropractic Academy for Research Leadership) generation.


The CARL Program (also referred to simply as ‘CARL’ hereafter) was established in 2016 to nurture and network promising research talent on the international stage. Providing a range of mentoring, career and research-specific training, CARL aims to not only bolster the opportunities of leading individual researchers but equally if not more importantly to also connect them and harness a critical mass for future research related to chiropractic across the world stage.CARL was established and designed by an international consortium of senior researchers at the University of Alberta, Canada (Professor Greg Kawchuk), the University of Southern Denmark & the Nordic Institute of Chiropractic and Clinical Biomechanics (Professor Jan Hartvigsen), and the University of Technology Sydney, Australia (Professor Jon Adams).


The first group of CARL scholars are about to reach the end of their participation and it is time to call for applications from young researchers, who wish to be part of the next generation. If you are interested, you can learn more about CARL in the links below:
