In some countries, research in Complementary and Alternative Medicine is very common, in others quite peripheral.
Research centres will benefit from improving the communication and co-operation between the European countries. Reinforcing communication will make it possible to exploit to full extent the fairly small funding available for this kind of research. And it will make it possible for the researchers to co-operate much more systematically, strengthening their network.
Thus, the recent FP7 project, 2010-2012, CAMbrella, is an important step for the CAM research community.
