- Are you working at national, regional, and local level in government, parliament, academia or civil society on improving the use of scientific evidence for policy-making?
- Would you like to learn more about Europe’s best practice in evidence-informed policy-making?
- Would you be interested in developing your ideas and projects for stronger science for policy eco-systems with like-minded professionals from all over Europe?
Then register now for the events of the workshop series on "Strengthening and connecting eco-systems of science for policy across Europe" between September 2020 and September 2022.
The Covid-19 pandemic has arguably highlighted the importance of robust scientific advice to policymakers. As part of the JRC's efforts to promote sound evidence-informed policy-making across Europe, a series of short, virtual workshops about 'science for policy eco-systems' will be organised between September 2020 and September 2022.
The workshops give opportunity to
- take stock, discuss and exchange experiences
- co-create ideas and projects for structures, mechanisms and instruments for strengthening evidence-informed policy-making across Europe
They come in two types:
- "single element" workshops: for an audience with a specific interest in a particular part of the multi-facetted evidence for policy eco-systems as it is applied across EU countries
- "single eco-system" workshops: for a group of officials and science for policy professionals from one Member State who discuss - with a group of international experts - one Member State's eco-system's good practices, lessons learnt, success factors and bottlenecks.
