The European Advisory Committee on Health Research (EACHR) is to hold its sixth meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 15-16 April 2015. 

Launched in 2011, the purpose of the EACHR is to promote and strengthen the use of research evidence for public health decision-making and to inform policies for the development of health research in the EURO Region.

The EACHR reports directly to the WHO Regional Director for Europe, and its functions are to advise on formulation of policies for the development of health research; review the scientific basis of selected regional programmes; co-ordinate health research internationally across the Region's Member States, advise on new findings on priority public health issues and evidence-based strategies to address them; and facilitate exchange of information on research agendas in the Region and address evidence gaps in priority areas.
