Evidence Synthesis Ireland


Systematic Reviews Of Scientific Evidence On Vaccines And Capacity Building Activities for the EU Commission’s Health and Digital Executive Agency (HaDEA). This funded project supports the activities of the EU/EEA National Immunisation Technical Advisory Groups’ (NITAGs) in their decision-making on national vaccination programmes, including COVID-19 vaccines.

The consortium includes Cochrane Germany, Cochrane Austria, Cochrane Ireland, the Robert Koch Insitut and PWC. Cochrane Ireland, through the University of Galway, was awarded €410,000 over 4 years to lead on (a) four evidence syntheses in the area of vaccines and EU/EEA vaccination programmes, and (b) developing and delivering an online training program on methodologies for assessing evidence and carrying out reviews, synthesis and evaluations and subsequent transformation into technical documents/guidance.
