Cochrane Hong Kong launches global university student knowledge translation competition

Cochrane Hong Kong launches global university student knowledge translation competition

Join the Knowledge Translation Competition organized by Cochrane Hong Kong! 

Cochrane defines knowledge translation (KT) as the process of supporting the use of health evidence from our high quality, trusted Cochrane Reviews by those who need it to make health decisions. Cochrane Hong Kong has recently launched the Knowledge Translation Awards to foster University student talent in translation and in creative dissemination of Cochrane evidence. 

Cochrane Students play a valuable role in the work Cochrane does and also helps them gain hands-on experience with health evidence and the scientific community. This award, organized by Cochrane Hong Kong, The Nethersole School of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, will recognize 36 students. The competition is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students across the world. There will be two categories: 

  • Knowledge translation creativity:  This award recognises undergraduate and postgraduate students who demonstrate talent in creating accessible, effective, and visually appealing works of evidence communication based on a Cochrane intervention review. 
  • Evidence Translation: This award recognises undergraduate and postgraduate students who demonstrate excellence in translating Cochrane evidence into a different language with consideration of the local context of the target audience.

Call for entries is open until 31 July, 2022. Learn more about these awards and submit your entry.
