We are looking for Cochrane Groups to host the 2020 and 2021 Cochrane Colloquia and the 2019, 2020, and 2021 Cochrane Governance Meetings.
Cochrane Colloquia are the flagship scientific meetings of the organization and have been held annually since 1993 in different locations across the world. They bring opportunities for people to discuss, develop, and promote scientific developments relevant to the work of Cochrane, provide training, and help shape Cochrane’s future direction. They are a chance for the community to get together to discuss the latest topics in evidence-based health care and learn about Cochrane methods through workshops and presentations.
The Colloquium is currently organized and hosted by a Cochrane Centre, Associate Centre, or Affiliate each year. The host is responsible for the local organizing of the Colloquium with support from the Central Executive Team.
The 2018 Colloquium will be held in Edinburgh and hosted by Cochrane UK; the 2019 Colloquium will be held in Santiago, Chile and hosted by Cochrane South America. We are looking for other Cochrane Groups to host the 2020 and 2021 Colloquia.
Cochrane Governance Meetings
Cochrane Governance Meetings are Cochrane’s annual business meetings. 'Cochrane Governance Meetings' is the new name for the Cochrane Mid-Year Meeting, and will be renamed for the 2018 meetings onwards.
The Governance Meetings are an opportunity for the Cochrane’s Governing Board, Councils, and Executives to meet and discuss the organization’s Strategy to 2020 and related targets, and how these are being developed and implemented.
Cochrane Portugal will be hosting the 2018 Cochrane Governance Meetings in Lisbon. We are looking for new Cochrane Groups to host our 2019, 2020, and 2021 events.
It is important to note that Governance Meetings must be held in Europe or an easily accessible transport hub. At a minimum, the location should be within two hours’ travelling time of an international airport.
Colloquium and Governance Meeting hosts are offered support from the Cochrane Executive Team throughout the organization and hosting of the event.
The deadline for submissions is 28 July 2017.
