Evidence and Implementation Summit

9-11 October
The Evidence and Implementation Summit is one of the leading evidence and implementation sector events on the global calendar. The event focuses on the intersection of research, policy and practice, with a focus on the synthesis, generation, translation, and implementation of evidence to improve lives. In 2023, we are planning an event that will bring together a wide network of global participants. The Summit enables participants to share advances in the fields of evidence synthesis and translation, evaluation and implementation science, and for these leaders to debate their impact on policies and programs and their capacity to change people’s lives for the better.
