Conference  2022-09-19 8:00 a.m.    2022-09-21 5:00 p.m.



The Africa Evidence Network (AEN) is hosting EVIDENCE 2022 from 19 until 21 September 2022. The EVIDENCE biennial event began as an in-person colloquium in 2014 with the intention of bringing together members of the AEN to explore how to enhance the overlaps in their work to support evidence-informed decision-making in Africa. This year the AEN is proud to continue the tradition of innovation in facilitating collaboration with EVIDENCE 2022. The theme for EVIDENCE 2022 is coming together for mutual learning and innovation in evidence-informed decision-making. The aim is to celebrate ten years since the establishment of the Africa Evidence Network and provide an opportunity for collaboration to enhance mutual learning and the development of new ideas about supporting evidence-informed decision-making.

Soon, you'll be able to register to join the EVIDENCE 2022 event in one of two ways:

  • As an engaged observer
    This category of participant dips in and out of live and recorded sessions at EVIDENCE 2022, contributing predominantly to asynchronous work. This option would suit those whose time zones are significantly different to SAST or those with unavoidably full diaries. 
  • As an active participant 
    People who want to be part of the live-action excitement present in every EVIDENCE event should select this option. Doing so will allow them to make their contributions to work synchronously and share their comments and questions during live events. This option would suit participants who can dedicate blocks of time to participating in EVIDENCE 2022 and whose time zones align with SAST. 

Full registration details and programme will be forthcoming. Submit all expressions of interest to participate in EVIDENCE 2022 to Precious Motha at ace@uj.ac.za.
