Why sponsor?

Cochrane's annual Colloquium is one of the premier global events in evidence-informed health care, attracting world-renowned researchers, scientists, health professionals, policy makers and consumers. Colloquia are more than just scientific conferences: we provide training at basic and advanced levels; offer opportunities for scientific exchange and meetings; promote the highest quality research in support of evidence-informed health care; showcase new methods in evidence synthesis; and address globally important healthcare questions.

As a sponsor with a presence at the Colloquium, you can reach this audience and participate in this major event which is taking place in East Asia for the first time. Your logo and/or profile will appear in the programme and on slides, you can choose to exhibit in the communal meeting and poster area, and your organisation will be recognised as a supporter of this great effort.

Why does Cochrane need your support?

Budgets for Cochrane Colloquia are prepared to cover costs only. Colloquium expenses are largely met from registration fees because Cochrane policies prohibit funding from conflicted sources, such as the drug or medical device industry. Unfortunately, this results in high registration costs that can be a barrier to participation.

We hope to raise additional funds through sponsorship from Korean and international organisations, agencies and institutions involved in health care, health research or knowledge translation. Funds raised will help reduce the registration costs of all participants, but especially those from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and those who are supported financially through Cochrane’s formal stipend process.
