Would you like to host a future Cochrane Colloquium or Governance Meeting?

We are looking for Cochrane Groups to host the 2020 and 2021 Cochrane Colloquia, and the 2019, 2020, and 2021 Cochrane Governance Meetings.

Call to host Cochrane Colloquia

Colloquia are Cochrane’s annual conferences, hosted each year by a different Cochrane Centre, Associate Centre, or Affiliate. Colloquia are designed to bring people together in one place to discuss, develop, and promote Cochrane’s work, as well as to shape the organization’s future direction. They are a chance for the community to get together to discuss the latest topics in evidence-based health care, and to learn about Cochrane methods through workshops and presentations.

The 2018 Colloquium will be held in Edinburgh and hosted by Cochrane UK; the 2019 Colloquium will be held 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 call

Governance Meetings are Cochrane’s annual business meetings. 'Cochrane Governance Meetings' is the new name for the Cochrane Mid-Year Meeting; this name will be in use for the 2018 meetings onwards.

They 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 Governance Meetings in Lisbon. We are looking for other Cochrane Groups to host the 2019, 2020, and 2021 events.

It is important to note that Cochrane 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.
