Science for Policymaking at the Centre of National Government

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 - 2:30pm

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) is organising a virtual workshop series on “Strengthening and connecting science for policy eco-systems in Europe” between September 2020 and May 2021.

We would like to warmly invite you to join these workshops.

A first workshop – scheduled for 8 September 2020, 14h30-17h, focuses on ‘science for policymaking at the centre of national governments’. It will cover and explore different mechanisms/structures (such as scientific council to the cabinet, chief science advisor to government, science advisors in national ministries) relevant to national governments.

Subsequent workshops would focus either on other specific mechanisms/structures of ‘eco-systems’ (science for policymaking in Parliaments, science for regional governments, science for policy by national academies, science for policy by public research institutes and universities) or on entire ‘eco-systems’ in one country. Additional information and an opportunity to register your interest, as well as shape the themes of the workshops can be found on this website.
