The Signature of Memorandum of Understanding between Cochrane, University of Brescia and Don Gnocchi Foundation was held in University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy, on September 20th 2016.
Mark Wilson gave a lecture about “Cochrane: past, present and future” in the Aula Magna of Brescia University, before the signing of the agreement between Cochrane, Don Gnocchi Foundation and University of Brescia. This confirmed the financial support required to establish Cochrane Rehabilitation. At the same time, the agreement between Don Gnocchi Foundation and University of Brescia was also signed to establish the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation of Rovato, which will be the headquarters of Cochrane Rehabilitation.
This led to the development of the proposal and subsequent establishment of the field in October 2016.
