European Centre for Chiropractic Research Excellence (ECCRE)
EUROPEAN CENTRE FOR CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH EXCELLENCE
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. From December 2020, the NIKKB was renamed Chiropractic Knowledge Hub (Kiropraktorernes Videnscenter)
The aim of the research institute is to contribute to further development and strengthening of musculoskeletal research in Europe.
ECCRE was formally founded in connection with the ECU Convention in May 2016 in Oslo, Norway. The stakeholders appointed a board for ECCRE, consisting of two representatives from NIKKB (as was named at the time) and two from ECU. NIKKB appointed Lone Kousgaard Jørgensen and Michael Christensen to represent NIKKB, while Vasileios Gkolfinopoulos, President of the ECU, represents the ECU. Lone Kousgaard Jørgensen now also represents the ECU in her role as ECU Treasurer.
