ICC’s mission is to improve the quality of life of IBD patients by means of scientific research on the pathogenesis of IBD and by developing and implementing new therarpies (innovation of patient care).

In 2003 a group of enthusiastic gastro-enterologists have founded the 'Initiative on Crohn and Colitis',  ICC.

They agreed to join forces in the field of IBD research with the goal to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic bowel diseases.

To realize the goals ICC focusses on three spearheads: health care and information to the patients who suffer from Crohn disease or colitis ulcerosa, teaching doctors and nurses, and medical scientific research to the causes and cures for chronic bowel suffering.
