Bringing together evidence, implementation, policy, and politics:

Towards a better future for all

The Evidence and Implementation Summit 2020 is an evolution of the Australasian Implementation Conference and the Global Evidence and Implementation Summit that was held in 2018. EIS 2020 will mark 10 years since the creation of the event series; it continues to be one of the leading evidence and implementation events on the global calendar.


If you are a policy maker, practitioner, organisational leader, researcher, implementation scientist or a funder, EIS 2020 is for you. Our focus is on the intersection of research, policy and practice. Share advances in the fields of evaluation, evidence synthesis and translation and implementation science and debate their impact on policies and programs to change the lives of people and communities for the better.

Who will attend?



21-22 October  


We anticipate more than 500 local and global policy makers, practitioners, organisational leaders, researchers, implementation scientists, intermediaries and funders will attend, and build upon the success of previous conferences in advancing the evidence and implementation movement. Expect to come away with new perspectives, contacts and tools with which to approach your research policy and practice challenges.


Centre for Evidence and Implementation (CEI) has successfully partnered with some of the field’s leading organisations to share and deliver collaborative vision, practical strategies, experience, knowledge and networking opportunities. This year we will host the two-day event alongside Monash University.
