Joint CEE/JKI Training Workshop: CADIMA and its supportive function during evidence synthesis
18th-20th of April 2016, Berlin, Germany
Evidence synthesis approaches, such as systematic reviews, represent powerful tools to identify, collect, summarise and appraise primary research in an objective, transparent and repeatable manner.
This two-day workshop introduces the basis of systematic reviews and free supportive internet tools for international review teams provided by the web portal CADIMA (Central Access Database for Impact Assessment of Crop Genetic Improvement Technologies): starting from question formulation, searching, screening, critical appraisal, data extraction and synthesis, through to the various possible outputs (reports, policy briefs, etc.).
The workshop offers practical guidance for potential review authors especially in the fields of environment, agriculture and impact assessment.
