What is ARCIM?


The acronym means: Academic Research in Complementary and Integrative Medicine.

The bridging between different research approaches, disciplines and ways of thinking achieved by the research work of the ARCIM Institute can be symbolised, for example, by a bridge arch. The Institute carries this bridge-building in its name, so to speak: the Latin term “arcus" means “arch" or “bridge".

The aim of the research institute, founded in 2010, is to conduct scientific research into integrative medicine, in particular anthroposophical medicine, on a scientific basis in accordance with the Equator Network criteria (http://www.equator-network.org/).
