Cochrane's Central Team aims to provide support to Cochrane Groups by hosting a programme of annual events and meetings.

We also provide support to the wider Community of members by facilitating promotion of events and meetings via our communications channels including websites and social media. For Groups attending external events, we can support with brand guidance, marketing expertise and materials.

Event support also includes promotion or Cochrane’s annual Awards and Prizes. You can find out more about each prize and how to nominate a Cochrane contributor below.

Find out more information about Cochrane’s events planning in 2022 below.

Events Planning Calendar:

The Events Planning Calendar is a live working document that will be updated regularly and accessible by the Community. It can be used to coordinate activity throughout the year, ensuring optimal scheduling and limiting event crossover throughout the Community.

Please see the planning calendar here.
