There is a need for better research and more thoughtful applications. EUROSPINE can play a major role in research education as a professional organisation. The EUROSPINE TFR suggests EUROSPINE members should be given priority to participate in the EUROSPINE Research Course. In January 2008, the first pilot research course was held at the University of Bern, Switzerland. Margareta Nordin initiated the course and Christine Cedraschi and Pierre Côté from the TFR participated as faculty members.

The course is designed for less experienced researchers with an idea for research or an unfinished proposal. The course focuses on methodologies to conduct research in the spine and related areas.
Methodologists and experienced researchers are matched with less experienced researchers and/or clinicians.
The course is offered over five days, with lectures about methodology in the morning and practical, hands-on experience in the afternoon and evenings. Participants and faculty work in teams with mandatory presentations and critique sessions conducted as the final examination of the course. The course is intense and the participants are able to produce a protocol for research during the week that is ready to use in an application for research.
