Researchers’ day

CALL for Researchers’ Day Open Session Presentations

Pre-conference seminar, May 24, 2018 – ECU convention 2018, Budapest, Hungary

We hereby call on researchers and clinicians with a research interest to give 15-minutes presentations about ideas, challenges and experiences related to ongoing projects.

We encourage participants to share and discuss issues relating to the process of conducting research – not the outcomes (Final results should be presented at the main conference).

Please forward a title, a brief presentation of the project (max 100 words) and name of presenting author via email to Mette Jensen Stochkendahl,, no later than May 1, 2018.

Researchers’ Day is hosted by the European Academy of Chiropractic (EAC) Special Interests Group (SIG) in Research. The EAC SIG in Research facilitates interaction and collaboration of European researchers with a background in chiropractic. Each year the EAC SIG in Research hosts the ‘Researcher’s Day’ in conjunction with the European Chiropractors’ Union Convention. The purpose of the Researchers’ Day is to provide an opportunity for researchers to interact, learn and formulate common strategies. The Researchers’ Day is sponsored by ECCRE.
