Would you like to host a future Governance Meeting?

GES meeting

Governance Meetings are Cochrane’s annual business meetings. We are looking for a Cochrane Groups to host the 2020 and 2021 events.

Cochrane 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. From the 1-5 April 2019, Cochrane Poland will be hosting the event in Krakow.

It is important to note that Cochrane Governance Meetings are usually held in Europe, where the location should be within two hours’ travelling time of an international airport; but they can also be held elsewhere in the world, though at an easily accessible transport hub.

Important information:

  • Your proposal will be put forward to the Cochrane Governing Board for decision as an Open Access paper
  • You will be notified of the result in September 2018
  • You are required to submit a proposed budget alongside the form
  • All proposals must include a letter of support from your host institution and/or funders

Governance Meeting hosts are given support from the Cochrane Executive Team throughout the organization and hosting of the event.
