This year, Cochrane Ireland and Cochrane UK are holding a symposium at The Gibson Hotel, Dublin, on the 21st and 22nd April.

The symposium is an annual event for all our networks, including Ireland- and UK-based Cochrane contributors, researchers, health professionals, students, charities, patient advocates, and other interested groups.

We are holding a competition offering three free places at the event.

The prize includes:

  • Reasonable travel expenses to and from Dublin (e.g. standard return fare, whether by train, bus, car or air) 

To apply, you must be based in Ireland or the UK.

We invite applications from:

  • full-time students with an interest in evidence-based decision-making
  • health professionals
  • health consumers (defined as patients, or persons with personal experience of a health condition, health and social care service users, caregivers or family members who are involved with someone with a health condition).

We ask that the prize winners write a short blog reflecting on their time at the symposium and how they hope to apply any learning.
