Satellite event facilitator information

Submission is now closed.

Satellite events are full-/half-day workshops or symposia that are not part of the four-day programme but will be of interest to participants at the Summit. The Satellites should further the event goals, and foster interaction and the development of partnerships, and have broad appeal across sectors. 

The Summit is intended as an inter-sectoral and multi-disciplinary event exchanging ideas about how we best generate, summarise and communicate evidence to inform policy and practice. We anticipate input from a multitude of perspectives including education, social policy and practice, criminal justice, environment, gender, health, health systems and clinical care and practice. 

If you would like to collect a registration fee for your Satellite event, kindly contact Holly Millward at for tips and advice on how to set this up, this will not be handled by the GES2017 organisers.
