Cochrane CEO

Catherine Spencer, Cochrane's CEO, extends a personal invitation to everyone in the Cochrane community: 

"It was wonderful to unite with the vibrant Cochrane community at our recent Cochrane Colloquium in London. In 2024, rather than hosting individual conferences, we take immense pride in co-hosting the 2nd Global Evidence Summit (GES) alongside some of our esteemed partners. This landmark event is scheduled to take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from 10 - 13 September with Satellite meetings on the 9 September.

We extend a warm and enthusiastic invitation to all our Cochrane members and supporters to mark these dates in their calendars and join us for what promises to be an extraordinary gathering of global minds. The GES serves as a pivotal platform for discussions spanning critical issues across various sectors, including health, education, social justice, the environment, and climate change.

Attending the GES will undoubtedly be of great benefit to our Cochrane community, fostering synergies and facilitating knowledge sharing within the global evidence community. I extend an invitation to explore the website, mark your calendars, and begin contemplating abstract submissions. Let's prepare to unite for #GES2024, actively shaping a future anchored in evidence-synthesis and collaborative efforts."
