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)

Focus

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.

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 appopinted by ECU.
