What is EVBRES?
A research and development network promoting collaboration
and capacity building for EVidence-Based RESearch.
• 4-year EU-funded COST Action (CA17117) running from October 17th 2018 to
October 16th 2022.
• A COST Action is a network dedicated to scientific collaboration, promoting
knowledge sharing and pooling of resources. It complements national research
funds, optimising investment through research cooperation.
Our aim
“To encourage researchers and
other stakeholders to use an
Evidence-Based Research
(EBR) approach while carrying
out and supporting clinical
research – thus avoiding
redundant research”.
The problem
Meta-research (i.e. research on research) indicates that clinical researchers
do NOT:
● Use a systematic and transparent approach to justify new studies
● Use a systematic and transparent approach to design new studies
● Use a systematic and transparent approach when placing new results in
the context of existing results from earlier similar trials
Why is this important? (1)
When earlier studies are not considered in a systematic and transparent
way when justifying and designing new clinical studies:
● Too many redundant studies are performed and published – leading to
the waste of time, resources and money
● Too many patients receive unnecessary placebo, or treatment which is
incorrect or suboptimal – leading to the waste of health and life
Why is this important? (2)
When new results are not placed in the context of earlier similar trials in a
systematic and transparent way:
● New results of a single study will bias the real results based upon all
similar trials including the new study
● Medical reversal will happen as new interventions may be introduced in
the clinic without real effect
● The recommendation that further studies are needed may be wrong and
lead to new redundant studies.

Working Groups To achieve our goal four working groups have been set up each with specific objectives: WG1: Identifying the implications of an evidence-based approach for key stakeholders: ethics committees, funding agencies, medical journals and patient groups WG2: Developing a course and handbook for health researchers on how to be evidence-based and why it is important WG3: Supporting international efforts towards more efficient production and updating of systematic reviews without compromising quality WG4: Meta-Research on EBR Implementation
  • 11. Action Management Committee • At the present time the EVBRES Action Management Committee consists of 100 participants representing 35 European countries (including 19 COST Inclusiveness Target Countries). • Institutions from Australia, Canada, Egypt, Gaza, India, Lebanon, Russia, South Africa, USA are involved as International Partners.
