Welcome to Global Evidence Summit 2024, Prague Czech Republic

We are excited to extend a warm invitation to you on behalf of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic, under the auspices of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, to the upcoming Global Evidence Summit 2024 in the beautiful city of Prague.

Save the Date: 10 - 13 September, 2024
Satellite Events: 9 September, 2024

Cochrane, JBI, GIN, and the Campbell Collaboration, some of the world’s leading organisations in evidence-based practice, are once again on a shared mission to provide a platform to discuss critical issues across different sectors, including health, education, social justice, the environment and climate change. The GES is intended as a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural event to exchange ideas about how we best produce, summarise and disseminate evidence to inform policy and practice, and using that evidence to improve people’s lives across the world.

Building upon the outstanding success of the inaugural Global Evidence Summit in Cape Town in 2017, we are thrilled to once again unite experts and passionate individuals from across the world including researchers, clinical professionals, early career professionals, patients and carers, policymakers, and anyone interested in evidence synthesis and evidence-based healthcare. The events are a mix of keynote presentations, training opportunities, workshops, concurrent sessions, and a lively social and networking atmosphere offers an exciting opportunity for a community of evidence synthesis enthusiasts to share, learn, and connect.

We will begin with Satellite Events on 9 September 2024, offering an exclusive opportunity for in-depth discussions and focused sessions, setting the stage for the main Summit.

The main programme will feature a captivating line-up of plenary talks, oral presentations, workshops, posters and special sessions that encompass a vast spectrum of topics,  guided by distinguished national and international experts. At the heart of the Summit is our unwavering commitment to harnessing the transformative power of robust research evidence, encapsulated in the theme 'Using Evidence. Improving Lives'.  We are poised to address some of the most formidable health and social challenges of our time, illuminating the path toward a brighter future.
