This event aims to present the Science Europe report on “Science Policy in Action. Insights for the Green and Digital Transition”. The findings from the report will be discussed with a high-level panel of research organisations’ leaders directly engaged on science-policy interactions or working to promote them at the organisational level. We invite you to join the discussion online, register here

Based on a survey of Science Europe member organisations, the study has three fundamental objectives.

  1. Understanding science-policy interfaces as activities promoting and facilitating science-informed policymaking.
  2. Mapping the science-policy activities of SE member organisations with a specific angle on the green and digital transition.
  3. Proposing recommendations to improve science-policy interactions.
