The ADBC was formed from the research department of the Dutch Burns Foundation (1997-2003). By doing so, the ADBC formed a national platform to improve the cooperation between the three dutch burn centres. Our main research aim is still same as defined by the dutch burn foundation in 1997:

  • Improve the treatment of burn patients on all aspects
  • Expanding our knowledge concerning burn care and patients
  • Improve the quality of burn research programs
  • Implement results from preclinical research into the clinic (from bench to bedside)

The Association of Dutch Burn Centres was founded in April 2003, as a continuation of the research department of the Dutch Burn Foundation. The aim of the Association is to stimulate cooperation between the three Dutch Burn Centres (in Beverwijk, Groningen and Rotterdam), by stimulating research, education and training and by establishing a centre of excellence in the field of burn care and burn research.

Research has been classified in four different programs:
