The Cochrane Collaboration holds annual conferences, known as ‘Colloquia’, which are open to everyone. Colloquia are designed to bring people together in one place to discuss, develop and promote our work, and to shape the organisation’s future direction. Please see the Colloquium Policy Advisory Commitee's website for more information.
