Hans Lund is Professor at the Centre for Evidence-Based Practice at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences in Bergen, Norway. As a physiotherapist Hans has been working with rehabilitation, both before and after his PhD thesis, that was defended in 1997. In 2007 he was employed as Director of Studies of a multidisciplinary Master program in rehabilitation at University of Southern Denmark. Shortly after, he established the first Master program in Physiotherapy in Denmark with the aim of creating a solid foundation for an evidence-based physiotherapy practice and better possibilities for Danish physiotherapists to achieve a PhD.
After being affiliated to Bergen in 2013, he initiated the creation of the Evidence-Based Research Network (EBRNetwork). The EBRNetwork aims to promote “No new research studies without prior systematic review of existing evidence” and an “Efficient production, updating, and accessibility of systematic reviews”. In 2018, the EBRNetwork was approved support from the European Union (A COST Action) to establish EVBRES, an International Network for Evidence-based Research in Clinical Health Research.
