This year, the CAS and ER programmes have joined forces to provide a forum for discussions between stakeholders and policymakers on how to anticipate upcoming challenges or shocks, how to be better prepared for them and how to tackle known obstacles and challenges in order to address them.
The recent COVID pandemic crisis has shone a harsh light on how the pandemic has catalysed social and economic change, while exposing the deep rooted challenges facing research methodologies and surmounting the science – policy interface.

In addition to wider issues around how we can better prepare for the future, the workshop will feature keynote speakers and panel discussions covering such diverse issues as pandemic preparedness, social inequality, digital transformation, pollution and global markets and supply chains.
The following three topics will drive presentations and discussions:
- Topic 1: Understanding and communicating scientific uncertainty in foresight and anticipation for policy makers
- Topic 2: Interdisciplinarity – how can it be achieved and made successful?
- Topic 3: Science and Data, from access to data to replication in science
Before or during the workshop, participants can explore the projects at a virtual e-posters exhibit
