Making science count in policy making

Making sound policies in all sorts of fields is not an exact science: moral choices, traditions, communication and many other aspects play important roles. However, policies that don’t take into account scientific evidence are almost sure to fail. Europe has launched its own mechanism to convey scientific advice to policy makers. It has been a complex, partially ongoing, construction.

This webinar is an opportunity to check the state of the art of the European advice mechanism. Its broader scope is also to discuss how this and other tools provide ways for European scientists to have their expertise taken into account by political leaders. The panel counts with the participation of 2 scientific advisers (EU and Ireland) and a scholar on the subject.

Confirmed speakers include:

This panel discussion will be moderated by Michele Catanzaro (physicist, freelance science journalist for Nature, El Periódico, and other outlets).

This is an online event. Updates with the access link will be sent to the registered attendees before the event.
