But only quality, promotes knowledge. ICMART wishes to promote both.
The ICMART Annual World Congresses

ICMART Science Award in Acupuncture and Related Techniques  

This is the main award of ICMART, which is presented at each ICMART Congress. It recognizes an important scientific contribution in the field of Acupuncture and related techniques. Submission requires innovative and excellent scientific projects either in basic research or in clinical research.

ICMART Scientific Chapter

The growth and acceptance of acupuncture practiced by medical doctors has taken place as a result of its perceived efficacy in many conditions and as a result of considerable recent research. Much high quality evidence now exists to support its clinical use for a wide range of problems based on randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews. Basic scientific research has determined many of the neurophysiological and neuropharmacological mechanisms by which acupuncture works. The scientific/research chapter was created within ICMART to help develop the understanding of acupuncture.

ICMART European Chapter

The ICMART European Chapter was established during the ICMART World Congress in Munich, 1991. It was a time of evolution for the growing European Union. There was an increasing need for common EU regulations and standardizations in different fields, including medicine and health systems.
