Launch of Evidence Synthesis International (ESI) at the What Works Global Summit

We invite you to join us at the launch of ESI, a new partnership of organisations that produce and use evidence syntheses around the world. Our scope is broad, from human health to conservation, and education to veterinary medicine. We are the global hub where evidence synthesis organizations meet to build capacity, share resources, and advocate for the synthesis and use of research evidence in policy and practice decision making.

Please join us at our launch session at the WWGS. This event is open to all without registration at the full summit.
