Cochrane Ireland will be led by Professor Declan Devane as Director of Cochrane Ireland and Evidence Synthesis Ireland, and the Cochrane Ireland team; Dr Elaine Toomey (Associate Director of Cochrane Ireland), Dr Patricia Healy (Programme Manager of Evidence Synthesis Ireland) and Sheena Connolly (Administrator of Evidence Synthesis Ireland).

Cochrane Ireland will join its international Cochrane colleagues to represent and promote Cochrane on the island of Ireland, facilitate engagement with regional stakeholders to improve knowledge translation and dissemination of Cochrane reviews, and build capacity for review production and use.

Cochrane launches new centre - Cochrane Colombia
- 05 Mar 2019

Cochrane, an independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers and people interested in health, has announced its newest centre, Cochrane Colombia.

Cochrane Colombia will promote evidence-based decision making in healthcare in Colombia by supporting and training authors of Cochrane Reviews, as well as working with clinicians, professional associations, policy-makers, patients, and the media to encourage the dissemination and use of Cochrane evidence.

Cochrane works with collaborators from more than 130 countries to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Cochrane's work is recognised as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information. Institutions from Colombia have been involved in the Cochrane Iberoamerica Network for many years. Establishing Cochrane Colombia as a full Centre is a next step in its development. The Centre brings together three institutions - the Pontifical Xavierian University, through the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics; the National University of Colombia through the Institute of Clinical Research; and, the University of Antioquia thorough the Faculty of Medicine - that will jointly manage the activities of Cochrane Colombia. In addition, five institutions will join as Cochrane Affiliates.

Cochrane Colombia will remain closely connected to the Cochrane Iberoamerican Network, through which methodological support, mentoring, and supervision will be provided.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte opens new TechHub at Elsevier's global headquarters
- 07 Feb 2019

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte opened a new TechHub at the Amsterdam global headquarters of information analytics business Elsevier, a subsidiary of RELX Group. The TechHub will enable world-class talent to combine large data sets with global technology platforms and advanced analytics to create digital tools that help researchers and health workers make better decisions. The Prime Minister's visit was part of his tour of several prominent and innovative international technology companies and start-ups operating in the Amsterdam region.

The TechHub is Elsevier's center of excellence, where world-class talent will work on developing innovative technologies that will allow Elsevier to turn information into actionable knowledge for users in science, healthcare and government sectors. In 2018 the TechHub grew by over 50 people, with Elsevier targeting an additional 80 or more new hires into the organisation in 2019. Elsevier is planning to have around 200 technologists based in the Amsterdam office by 2020, demonstrating the business' commitment to attracting and retaining high-quality tech talent to the benefit of the Dutch knowledge economy.

During his visit, Mr. Rutte was given a tour of cutting-edge technology demonstrations from RELX Group businesses including Elsevier, ThreatMetrix, Accuity and LexisNexis.

Presentations covered how artificial intelligence is used to integrate evidence-based content into the healthcare process and help improve patient outcomes; how to support Dutch universities with information systems in research; how digital fraud can be combatted; how to support trade officers make decisions about potential harmful, dual-use goods; and how government officials can stay up-to-date on news about relevant topics. Each demonstration showed the company's commitment to serving professionals in the Netherlands by helping scientists, doctors, universities and financial institutions thrive in an ever-changing, data and technology-driven work environment.
