SCIPOS is a joint venture of all professors and scientific assistants in the Department of Physiotherapy and Osteopathy at the University of Applied Science in Osnabrück.
Founded by Professor Dr. Christoff Zalpour in 2005, the group is now represented by a new name and logo: SCIPOS stands for Science in Physiotherapy and Osteopathy in Osnabrück. The logo shows an action potential which symbolizes the widespread energy and creativity of the group.
The superior aim of SCIPOS is to establish self-contained physiotherapeutic and osteopathic science at the University of Applied Science in Osnabrück. The members tend to inspire to do research, to investigate, to reflect research findings and to make them publically visible. As a scientific joint venture of an university, encouraging young talents plays an important role.
