Organising Partners

The Global Evidence Summit is a collaboration between four global leaders in evidence-based policy and practice, Cochrane, JBI, GIN and the Campbell Collaboration. They have once again joined forces to deliver the highly anticipated second Global Evidence Summit in Prague in 2024!

The GES was conceptualised by the organising partners and the spirit of the Summit ‘Using evidence. Improving lives’ aims to:

•          advance the use of reliable research evidence in addressing some of the world’s most serious health and social challenges;

•          bring together multidisciplinary factors from the global evidence community;

•          facilitate communication and collaboration between all those working on the synthesis, dissemination, and implementation of evidence

•          promote evidence-based decision-making worldwide;

•          strengthen ties between all partners and supporters; and

•          showcase the work of all partners and supporters with high-quality scientific presentations.

Cochrane is an international network with headquarters in the UK, a registered not-for-profit organisation, and a member of the UK National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Cochrane is for anyone interested in using high-quality information to make health decisions. Whether you are a clinician, patient or carer, researcher, or policy-maker, Cochrane evidence provides a powerful tool to enhance your healthcare knowledge and decision-making.

Cochrane's members and supporters come from more than 190 countries, worldwide. We are researchers, health professionals, patients, carers, and people passionate about improving health outcomes for everyone, everywhere. Our global independent network gathers and summarizes the best evidence from research to help you make informed choices about treatment and we have been doing this for 30 years.

We do not accept commercial or conflicted funding. This is vital for us to generate authoritative and reliable information, working freely, unconstrained by commercial and financial interests.

JBI is an international research organisation based at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. JBI develops and delivers unique evidence-based information, software, education and training designed to improve healthcare practice and health outcomes globally. For more than 25 years JBI has worked with its global network of universities and hospitals across 40+ countries to ensure that researchers, policymakers and health professionals can access high quality evidence, appraise diverse types of evidence and apply evidence at the point of care.

The Guidelines International Network, or GIN, is the connector in the guideline world. Established in 2002, we currently have 119 organisational members and 107 individual members from 47 countries – all with a common goal of improving healthcare, through using evidence and implementing evidence-based guidelines.

GIN's aims are simple – to enable and facilitate networking and collaboration, whether national or international, bring the best minds together and support continuous learning and improvement and at the same time, reduce duplication of effort across the guideline world.

The Campbell Collaboration is an international research network that promotes evidence-based decision- and policy-making through the production of systematic reviews and other types of evidence synthesis. Campbell is composed of editorial groups that coordinate the production of systematic reviews and evidence and gap maps in the following areas: Ageing, Business & Management, Children and Young Persons Wellbeing, Climate Solutions, Crime & Justice, Disability, Education, International Development, Knowledge Translation & Implementation, Methods and Social Welfare.
