During April 2019, the 20th Annual Conference of the German Network Evidence-based Medicine (EbM) society took place in Berlin. This meeting accorded to the motto “EbM and digital transformation in medicine”. Our InRes members Klaus Lieb1 and Marlene Stoll1 gave a talk in form of a scientific symposium in cooperation with David Klemperer2, Roland Imhoff3 and Susanne Bloedt4. Background is that financial COI and their consequences are better researched than indirect COI. The goal of the symposium was to introduce and inform about the terminology and the conceptuality of non-financial COI and it was titled “Risk of Bias and their regulation´s opportunities”.
