Global Evidence and Implementation Summit 2018

Are you committed to using evidence to improve public services?

The Global Evidence and Implementation Summit 2018 (GEIS) will bring together more than 600 experts from a range of sectors — including leaders from across the public services sector — to talk about how to generate, synthesise and implement evidence for better policy and practice.

Together we will discuss how to access, understand, synthesis and use evidence better. We’ll also look at strategies for scaling, sustaining and evaluating results. This premier global summit will be an invaluable learning and networking opportunity for all those committed to using evidence to create stronger communities locally and globally.

Key speakers:

  • Hirokazu Yoshikawa is a professor at New York University, where he also co-directs the Global TIES for Children center. His research is focused on youth, immigration and inequality; Hirokazu was recently appointed to lead a research program assessing the impact of early childhood education for Syrian refugees.
  • Dr Cara C. Lewis is the President for the Society of the Implementation Research Collaboration. An international leader in implementation science, her research is building the case for using measurements to improve community mental health services. 

Who should attend?

GEIS 2018 is for funding agencies, policy makers, practitioners, knowledge brokers, implementation scientists and researchers committed to the generation and implementation of evidence for better policy and practice.
