  • You have the opportunity to become an S4BE Pioneer…

Pioneers are student contributors who contribute three or more blogs over a 12 month period. Becoming an S4BE Pioneer means you can receive a certificate stating your time as a Pioneer. This is signed by Martin Burton, Director of Cochrane UK, S4BE’s supporting partner organization. Becoming a Pioneer takes a little time, so you will need to register first as a Contributor.

To become an S4BE Contributor you must be a current student.


S4BE Partners are organizations and groups who support the work of S4BE by sharing the blogs and sending any interested students from their networks, in our direction.

You can see our list of current Partners, here: students4bestevidence.net/s4be-partners

If your group or organization would like to become an S4BE Partner, please contact Emma Carter at general@students4bestevidence.net. We would love to hear from you.
