Nordic Cochrane Centre's 25th Anniversary Symposium - Welcome

25th Anniversary Research Symposium

This October, it is 25 years since both the Cochrane Collaboration and the Nordic Cochrane Centre were established. To commemorate this occasion, we will host a symposium featuring a series of lectures that exemplify how our research at the Nordic Cochrane Centre has contributed to healthcare and evidence-based medicine over the last 25 years. We have invited a number of speakers who have been affiliated with our Centre throughout the years to come and talk about their research and the impact it has had on healthcare.

The event will be held on:

When: Friday, 12th October 2018
Where: Rigshospitalet, Auditorium 1
Time: 8 am to 4 pm
