Satellite events

Satellite events are full-/half-day workshops or symposia that are not part of the four day programme but will be of interest to participants at the Global Evidence Summit. The satellites should further the event goals, and foster interaction, and the development of partnerships and have broad appeal across sectors. 

More details about each satellite event will be added soon. You will be able to sign up to the events when the schedule and sign-up launches on the 18 August 2017.
