Let's meet at Global Evidence Summit!

The Evidence Prime team is very excited to be attending the Global Evidence Summit in Cape Town. The synergy of effort from the annual Cochrane Collaboration Colloquium and the G-I-N conference will certainly provide some interesting meeting opportunities. Zbyszek and Eric will be happy to meet all those who would like to know more about our solutions. If you do not see those gentlemen in the crowd, please write to info@evidenceprime.com, or tweet out to @evidence_prime and we will certainly arrange a meeting.We are already familiar with the excellent program of the conference. Out of the labyrinth of lectures, discussions, workshops and presentations we provide here a list of GRADE events. The most experienced GRADE experts will explain the basics, and also point out some new directions and new applications to which the GRADE methodology may be applied. There will be very hands-on activities on specific issues, which will facilitate and improve the quality of your work in systematic reviews and guideline development. Those who are still undecided about which events to attend in Cape Town should definitely look into one of these meetings:
