Cochrane UK hosted a unique event in Manchester in May - Cochrane: collaborating for the future. It was an opportunity for the Cochrane community in the UK to help shape the future of Cochrane.
The Governing Board has identified and endorsed a new model for Cochrane Review production. It has shared its broad vision for the restructuring of the organisation. This aims to make Cochrane sustainable, relevant and impactful, whilst preserving the expertise of the community and our collaborative spirit.
The event provided the opportunity for us to debate and discuss different ideas for the future, building upon the foundations set out in Karla Soares-Weiser’s Future of Evidence Synthesis report. Karla and her team joined us, for an interesting and lively day.
There was also a drinks reception and dinner the previous evening and we were pleased to see many of you then also.
Finally, there were slots available for meetings for those who wished to host or organize them from 14:00 to 17:00 on Monday, but these were not a core part of the event.
Venue: Macdonald Manchester Hotel, London Road, Manchester M1 2PG.
